India and the United States will form a joint working group on education in order to set up links between secondary, higher and vocational schools, said the Times of India.
The joint working group, to be headed by Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal and the U.S. Secretary of Education, will meet once a year alternately in India and the U.S.
One goal is to boost Indian enrollment in U.S. schools. India already sends more students to the U.S. than any other country. About 90,000 Indian students a year pursue a higher education in the U.S.
Sibal said that India’s young population will provide a trained workforce for the world in the coming years.
