DC of Habiganj attends Uttoron’s dialogue 

Uttoron organised a dialogue on, “Need for Skilled Workforce: Challenges and Mitigation strategy”, with the local administration of Habiganj, private sector and NGOs on 11 January 2021 at The Palace Resort, Habiganj.

At the event the industry leaders pointed out that the existing workforce lacks the skill to meet the demand of the fourth industrial revolution and we need to modernise our training curriculums and TVET system to mitigate this problem. They also mentioned that women workers demonstrate higher level of professionalism and productivity at workplace. However, because of social taboos and security issues persistent in Sylhet region they feel discouraged to work in the industry. They requested the district administration to pay special attention to resolve this problem.
