The government should focus on the strategic importance of equipping young people with the skills who are in high demand in the international job market.
The demand was put forth by speakers at a seminar held here on Friday to mark the World Youth Skills Day and arranged by Knight Human Management (KHM) Shalaan GL Pakistan in Rawalpindi.
The seminar was attended by a large number of experts and students including Dr. Hafiz Matiullah, Prof. Dr. Mubarak Hussain, Engineer Mohammad Akmal and CEO of KHM Khalid Nawaz. The passing out students of a 4 months training course on tax advisory were also given certificates on the occasion.
Speaking on the occasion, Khalid Nawaz said the education and learning system is yet to return to pre-crisis conditions of COVID-19 and during the emergency lockdowns, the learners had lost their precious time of learning.
“But we did what we should be with regard to training a batch of students with the skills as professional tax advisors”, he added.
He said we accumulated the resilience and creativity of youth and focused attention on imparting technical and professional training of youth with the observance of all SOPs.
