Summary report of the webinar held on 25 May 2022

On 25 May 2022, the International Labour Organization (ILO) held a virtual national workshop entitled “Towards a brighter future of work in the Indian digital economy". The webinar was held with a view to sharing the findings of the ILO’s ‘Future of Work in Information and Communication Technology (ICT)’ project that was conducted between 2017 and 2020. The research focused on skills shortages, skills development strategies and the governance of international labour migration of ICT specialists in seven target countries: Canada, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand. Given that many countries, including India, faced challenges in fulfilling the growing demand for highly skilled ICT personnel, the webinar aimed to share the findings of the project with a view to improve understanding of skills development strategies and governance of high-skilled labour migration.
