      A key area of interest in India is the Swiss VET system, which is considered as the key to high tech, balanced growth and full employment.

      The School's focus on practice-oriented education as well as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) was emphasised by the Director of the School of Business and identified as highly significant. It is also a top priority in India, as stressed by the recent visit to Switzerland of Mr Rajiv Pratap Rudy, the Indian Minister of State Skill Development & Entrepreneurship. Concluding the meeting, all parties expressed interest in strengthening relations through further cooperation.
