         The tenth Joint Working Group (JWG) meeting in Indo-German Cooperation in Vocational Education and Training (VET) was held on 24th October 2017 in Bonn, Germany. The Indian side was led by Dr. K.P. Krishnan, Secretary, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) and the German side by Mr. Volker Rieke, Director General, Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
