Faisalabad Industrial Estate Develop-ment and Management Company (FIEDMC) Chairman Mian Kashif Ashfaq Saturday said the government is fully committed to reform-ing the skill sector of the country that would not only ensure a pros-perous future for young people but also the country.
He expressed these views while talking to Prof Dr Shahid Kamal, Vice-Chancellor of Government College University Faisalabad (GCUF) here today and both FIEDMC and GCUF would expedite co-operation and coordination to ensure provision of quality skilled manpower to the industry,’ said a news release issued here on Sat-urday.
There was a consensus between the two sides that the promo-tion of technical education was a pre-requisite to the much-needed Gross Development Production growth.
They also agreed to hold regular meetings for curricula review keeping in view the requirement of the industry.
This primary objective of this venture is to promote technical and vocational education among the laborers working in CPEC’s Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and the rest of the industry.
Mian Kashif Ashfaq said it was high time that industrialists should avail themselves of facilities being offered by GCUF.
He said the GCUF would ensure provision of rightly skilled man-power to the local industry, but the industry would also have to do the needful as the technical authority needed proper and consistent support from our business community to start new projects and new courses. He said well trained manpower not only reduces the cost of pro-duction but also play a vital role in achieving the desired and re-quired economic goals as it would lead to quality production, which ultimately would create global demand. – Agencies
