Bishnu Parida, COO, JSLPS in his welcome address introduced JSLPS to the participants and the various Livelihood schemes that the Society implements for various age groups in the state of Jharkhand. He highlighted the importance of DDU-GKY in skilling the youth of the State in various sectors.

Divya Jain, Co-Founder & CEO of Safeducate emphasized that the Logistics Sector is the largest growing sector in the world given the boom by Ecommerce platform. In the coming two years Safeducate in itself can support the placement of more than one hundred thousand trained candidates. Ravikant Yamarthy, Chief Operating Officer at Logistics Sector Skill Council was very positive on the job prospects of trained manpower in the Logistics Sector. Demand for Drivers and Warehousing professionals is very high. In-fact small warehousing is going to be a big thing in the near future, with proper mapping of the value chain this would be a great Entrepreneurship opportunity for youth with availability of small rooms and very less capital.
