World Bank said, Thrust on education and healthcare will be the key to success of the government's 'Make in India' programme, helping the country's labour force become globally competitive.
"I think the key is to focus on quality of primary and secondary education. It is really important that India competes with the rest of the world because the 'Make in India' means that your labour force has to be competitive with the rest of the world", World Bank Country Director in India Onno Ruhl said in the national capital.
He was speaking to reporters while releasing the World Bank report, 'Addressing Inequality in South Asia'.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched the 'Make in India' campaign in September to attract foreign investors and make the country a global manufacturing hub.
Manufacturing add about 16-17 % to the GDP.
Aim of the Government to increase the share to 25 % by 2022.
National health mission is an opportunity for the government to build good healthcare system as Ruhl said.
"It is really good that there is a conversation about national health insurance. The national health mission is a good opportunity to build a good health care system. Healthcare is a challenge to every country", he added.
Besides, Ruhl said India should ensure that subsidies reach the targeted segment.
"I would say look at subsidies and make sure that the money spent actually reaches the targeted people. There is a need to improve and work on health and sanitation because it is an opportunity. Create as many jobs as you can for everybody", he said.
As the World Bank report jobs and migration are supporting considerable upward mobility among both the poor and the vulnerable sections of the population in India.
"Households from Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes considered together experienced upward mobility comparable to that of the rest of the population", it said.
According to World Bank analysis, increase in non-farm jobs in rural India was one of the main drivers for upward mobility.
