Dhaka commits to initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth
Bangladesh’s ‘Access to Information-Innovate for All’ initiative recently announced its commitment to the global initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth at the Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development in Bangkok. Access to Information (a2i) is the flagship programme of the Bangladesh Government’s digital agenda to train 250,000 youth in digital skills.

The programme aims to deliver 340,200 apprenticeships by 2023. “Bangladesh is proud to be the first government in Asia and the Pacific to commit to the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth and invites other governments to join,” said Anir Chowdhury, policy advisor, a2i-Innovate for All.

Launched in 2016, Decent Jobs for Youth is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together governments, social partners, the private sector, youth and civil society organisations to scale up action and impact on youth employment worldwide.

The Bangladesh unit of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) applauds this new partnership and looks forward to working with the government, employers’ organisations and young trainees to make it a long-term success, said Tuomo Poutiainen, country director, ILO Bangladesh.

Following the training on multiple digital skills, the link to employment opportunities for trained youth will be facilitated by the government, the private sector, development partners and NGOs, according to an ILO press release. (DS)
