According to a statement issued by the Union ministry of education, Pradhan spoke about collaborative efforts among countries. “He spoke about the importance of sharing mutual experiences & working together to create a new world in which education remains the nodal point for addressing common challenges,” the statement stated.

Discussing the NEP 2020, Pradhan said that India is giving special emphasis on formalizing early childhood care and education, supporting differently-abled children, boosting digital and multi-modal learning, flexible entry-exit pathways, and integrating education with skills, which are keys to improving learning outcomes.

“He further said that India has operationalized virtual schools and is in the process of setting up Digital universities & 260+ TV channels dedicated to education in multiple Indian languages to expand the realm of education and also for achieving the goal of making education equitable & accessible,” the ministry statement added.
