Each party was to contest the elections for ten seats. Three children each were nominated as candidates from the major cities from each side. The resultant process clarified much of the bottlenecks in the learning process.
The second part of the day was devoted to a session on multiplication and division, specially that comprising of two digit numbers, with power performers Mansi and Atul spearheading the session.

She expressed that the trade to GDP ratio have came down from 55.8% to 41.1% from 2012 to 2017.Daniel Samaan, senior economist at ILO stated that the solution for these was the main thrust of the report, and emphasized on enhancement of export in South Asian counties. In order to increase export three policies have been suggested in the report, which areIncrease the scale of exports, Change the composition of exports to help the disadvantaged workers and Change the composition of workforce to help the disadvantaged group.
Amitabh Kant, CEONitiAyog spoke about Global Value Chain and the need to have single objective to focus on. He stressed on the improvement required in the quality of jobs available in India.

He also stated that large percentage of workers are skilled but not certified. Ms. Sabina Dewan, ED of Just Jobs network threw light on strategies for job creation and workforce development.

The illuminating exchanges concluded on the note that exports undoubtedly can increase jobs in a country but we also need to consider a host of other specific aspects to handle the problem of job scarcity in South Asian countries.,
