About JIM initiative
Japan-India Institute for Manufacturing (JIM) is born out of a collaboration between the Governments of Japan and India to create a pool of skilled manpower for manufacturing in India. It follows from a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) signed in 2016 between Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Government of Japan and Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), Government of India, for a “Manufacturing Skill Transfer Promotion Programme” to train 30,000 youths in India over 10 years.
