Need to lay emphasis on technical education

Bangladesh should focus more on imparting technical education, Commerce Secretary Ghulam Hussain recently said, while speaking in the capacity of a chief guest at a seminar on 'Awareness Building on Product Standards and Environment of Leather Goods and Footwear'.

The country needs to emphasize more on imparting technical and vocational education, as it is not possible to generate skilled workforce with general education, the official said. He even went to the extent of saying that, in order to generate a skilled workforce minimum 70 percent of the colleges need to be transformed into institutions that imparts technical knowledge.

He said that, the country should set up a distinct ministry for technical education.

The seminar was jointly held by the Leather goods and Footwear Manufactures and Exporters Associations (LFMEAB) and Leather Sector Business Promotion Council under the Ministry of Commerce.

The industry has immense potential for capacity building and to boost exports, mainly because the export orders from many of the competitor countries are now flowing in to Bangladesh, Saiful Islam, President of LFMEAB said. If the country's leather exports are boosted, then it would also lead to generation of more employment opportunities in the sector, he added.

Hussain here even revealed that, presently some 15 firms are functional in the country's leather industry, while two more are on their way to enter the sector. This is likely to give rise to heavy demand for skilled workers, and thus it is essential to lay more emphasis on generating a skilled workforce by imparting technical education.
