It said that developing countries with large youth populations could see their economies soar, provided they invest heavily in young people's education. A UN report says that with 356 million 10-24 year olds, India has the world's largest youth population. That means, by 2020, the average age in India will be 29 and it is set to become the world's youngest country with 64 percent of its population in the working age group. However, this advantage is going to pay us only if our young population is transformed into skilled manpower to cater to the needs of swift-growing economy of the world.
