This further requires that the Capital Goods sector, which is considered to be the core of manufacturing, should grow at around 17-19%.

The estimated current manpower employment across the six sub-sectors is approximately 1,300,000.The projected manpower requirement in 2017 across the six sub-sectors is approximately 2,085,000.
