In order to transform India as an Educational core, there was an event organized by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies. Sibal approved that India has reached out to create an environment for the US universities to set up the base in India. Addressing the US Education department, Sibal said, “You have a higher education structure which is the envy of the world, it has been at the front of all knowledge creation. However US has the best academics all over the world.” “Its the right time for you to collaborate with us, because in that process you will also participate in not just helping us solve our problems but helping us to solve the problems over the world,” he added.
As the present world is struggling with major problems such as climate change, poverty and food security, will technology and research play a key role in acquiring solutions for these problems?
