Dhaka Skill Summit ends with call for skill development
The three-day mega event “Dhaka Summit on Skills, Employability, and Decent Work 2016” ended on Tuesday with a call for job creation through skill development. Labour and Employment Ministry, Bangladesh Employers' Federation and National Coordination Committee for Workers Education in association with the a2i Programme of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) organised the summit. Finance Minister AMA Muhith attended the concluding session as the chief guest. AMA Muhith said the government will provide necessary training for workers, professionals, mid-level management and trainers to boost their skill, reduce the gap of workers' skill and demand, and create more jobs. The government has already extended an all-out support under its Seventh Five-Year Plan for skill development, the finance minister continued. “A Tk100-crore fund has been allocated for human resource development.” Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed, State Minister for Labour and Employment M Mujibul Haque and ILO Assistant Director General and Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific Tomoko Nishimoto were present at the event. In their concluding remarks, the ministers said they would contribute to the employment-led growth model by taking appropriate initiatives for skill development, creating new employment opportunities and enhancing the employability of workforce in order to realise Bangladesh's vision to obtain the middle-income status. They said they are committed to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for reducing poverty, eliminating hunger and promoting a safer environment and workplace and responsible production and consumption. They also put emphasis on mainstreaming persons with disability for inclusive economic growth. The speakers said they have committed themselves to promoting gender equality and inclusion of disadvantaged groups, particularly the persons with disability, in all employment generation schemes, policy and regulatory frameworks.
