Speaking on the occasion Shri Manish Sisodia said, “Platforms such as ASES and DIDAC India play an important role to promote peer learning among countries and educational institutions which is critical for adopting best practices in education.  There is a great scope of learning from our counterparts such as Thailand, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in various areas of education and training. Teacher training is one such aspect that is crucial to improve and maintain the quality of our education system especially, the government school system. Technology in education is another area which we need to focus on and internalize. We have to find innovative ways to make education fun and less burdensome for students. In Delhi, we have already cut down the curriculum by 25% to reduce the burden on the students and introduced happy curriculum. We have also requested the Central Govt. to look at the possibility of reducing it up to 50%.”

On this occasion, Shri Dominic Savage OBE, Director, Education World Forum, said “We are proud to hold ASES in India each year and to witness and discuss the strides that India and its neighbors are taking in developing education for the challenges we face globally. Our theme this year is Learning for tomorrow’s world and we are looking forward to listening carefully and debating fully the plans and experiences of the region. We are delighted that ASES attracts ministers from around the region and has the support of ministers in India; a powerful combination to help prepare all our education systems to succeed.”

Shri Aditya Gupta, CEO, India Didactics Association said, “India has the largest percentage of young people in the world. This essential human resource must be provided with working competencies and skills keeping in mind the latest innovation and technological developments in the education sector to make them future ready with industrial revolution 4.0.
