PM Nawaz desires setting up National Skills University in Islamabad
The initiative should be taken to address the shortage of skilled human resource at all levels.
According to an official document, under the umbrella of National Skills University, skills development centers in major industrial clusters like Karachi, Hyderabad, Quetta, Gwadar, Multan, Peshawar, Kohat, Lahore, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Faisalabad and other developing industrial zones could be set up subsequently or simultaneously.
For determining the areas of skill development, a broad and comprehensive exercise should be undertaken with representatives of Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) and organizations of all the major export sectors, the document said.
The Prime Minister observed that development of skilled human resource was prerequisite for transition of middle income economy into high income group with equitable resource distribution as an inherent output.
He further observed that the quality of skill development was also a major limitation which was affecting the competitiveness of Pakistan’s export industry.
It was, therefore, imperative that a well-coordinated exercise should be undertaken for skill development of workers of all categories and capacities across the country, he added.
