New EU-ILO skill development project debuts in Bangladesh

Dec '16
A new skills development programme titled ‘Skills 21 – Empowering citizens for inclusive and sustainable growth’ was launched in Bangladesh. The new European Union (EU) programme implemented by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) will build on the achievements of earlier EU/ILO initiatives and continue to modernise the TVET system in Bangladesh.

The joint declaration was signed and launched by representatives of the Bangladesh government, EU and ILO. The total budget for the programme is €20 million of which the EU will contribute €19.5 million.

The Skills 21 programme will also aim at creating conditions for a sector wide approach for the TVET policy area in Bangladesh. In doing so, it will also be instrumental in creating more skilled trainers and more diversified job opportunities.

According to the education minister in Bangladesh, Nurul Islam Nahid, this initiative will support the Government’s commitments to inclusive economic growth and full and productive employment for all.

“The launch of the Skills 21 project will provide further assistance to our national efforts to create an effective, demand driven skills system that will meet the needs and aspirations of our people, especially the two million who enter the workforce every year,” Nahid said. (AR)
