The National Skills Development Authority (NSDA), under the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), launched ‘National Skills Competition’ across the country to facilitate development and enhancement of skills of the country’s large workforce at all trades to global standards.

The competition was launched at a function at Hotel Renaissance in the capital on Saturday night, said a press release yesterday.

Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal inaugurated the competition as the chief guest while Prime Minister’s Private Industry and Investment Adviser Salman Fazlur Rahman delivered speech as the special guest.

Asian Development Bank (ADB) Country Director Manmohan Parkash spoke as the guest of honour while Secretary of the PMO Md Tofazzel Hossain Miah presided over the programme and delivered concluding speech.

Executive Chairman of the NSDA Md Faruque Hossain delivered vote of thanks.

Speaking at the event, Mustafa Kamal said the government has undertaken different projects to develop skills of the country’s youths marking the celebration of birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“Though Bangladesh is the host country, the birth centenary will be celebrated all over the world, which is rare,” he added.

The finance minister said many organisations are providing training to develop skills and the workers of the country are very skilled in many fields.

However, he said, the country has to bring all people under skill.

Salman F Rahman said skills development of the country’s manpower is essential to face the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR). “Bangladesh is moving forward. If we can make country’s young generation skilled, we can overcome the challenges of 4IR and we can also take the opportunities of the industrial revolution,” he added.
