The European Union (EU) is interested in providing financial support for building training centers in the country to facilitate training to people seeking jobs abroad.
"The EU expressed their keenness to provide financial supports to building training centers to enhance skill of the workers," Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment minister Khandker Mosharraf Hossain told reporters after a meeting with EU Ambassador to Bangladesh Pierre Mayaudon at Probashai Kalyan Bhaban in the capital on Sunday.
Mosharraf said apart from existing 70 technical training centers (TTC) across the country, the government has decided to set at least one TTC in all the upazilas each.
He noted that about Tk 15,000 crore will be required in this regard.
Through the establishment of the training centers, the government will be able to prepare skilled manpower so that they can get jobs in developed countries, he said.
Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment Secretary Khandker Md Ifthekhar Haider and Manpower, Employment and Training Bureau director general Begum Shamsun Nahar, among others, were present on the occasion.    ?UNB
