Employers' Conference 2013, Dubai

Employers' Conference 2013, Dubai


Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA), Government of India and 
India Centre for Migration

Migration for employment continues to prevail as the dominant mode of globalization as it addresses the labour shortages and contributes to development, both in the country of destination and origin. Although the international market provides immense opportunities for migrant workers across the globe, the mismatch between the skills that prospective migrants offer and the ones that employers need is an issue of critical importance. In the Indian context, this challenge provides an opportunity for channelizing India's huge youth population by providing appropriate skills and sustained interaction with the employers from overseas.

The Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA), Government of India, had organized the first Employers Conference in 2011 in Hyderabad, and it now proposes to organize the second Employers Conference in Dubai on 27th & 28th October 2013. The Ministry believes this conference will provide an opportunity to bring together the employers from overseas, especially the GCC countries on to a common platform, debate and understand the concerns relating to employment of Indian workers. The Conference will also be a platform for the Government of India to bring officials from both the Central & State Governments to express their views and interact with the overseas employers. The Conference will be organized by the Ministry in association with the India Centre for Migration (ICM) and Overseas Indian Facilitation Centre.

Key Objectives

  • Discuss the policy perspective of the Government of India on emigration from India
  • Create awareness on safe, humane and legal emigration, and the steps taken by the Ministry
  • Present details of various schemes/initiatives of the Ministry and other State Governments in skill development
