Foreign Minister (FM) AK Abdul Momen has said that United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) can play an important role by providing training to the youths of Bangladesh to enhance their skills and capacity in various fields.

According to him, “49 per cent population of Bangladesh is below 25 years. At least 70 per cent of the total population is youth. The government wants to make them skilled through education and training so that they can work both home and abroad.”  The FM sought cooperation of the UNDP in skill development for the youths through training yesterday while addressing a programme at a hotel in the capital as the chief guest. “We want the youths to be skilled so that they can be entrepreneurs instead of looking for the jobs. Around six lakh IT freelancers are now working in Bangladesh. The whole world becomes their workplace by working from home,” he added.

The FM lamented for not providing assistance as per pledges to the developing and least developed countries by the developed countries with high income.

Appreciating the role of UNDP, the minister said, “The money of UN (United Nations) is being squandered in many countries but here the amount of wastage is very low. Unlike UN, UNDP is successful in this regard.”

Momen urged partnership in every possible sphere including private sectors, NGOs after mentioning the spending data of the developed countries and the international agencies. The programme was organised as the UNDP yesterday launched Bangla font and Bangla version of the Human Development Report 2019 marking the International Mother Language day.

Dr Selim Jahan wrote the synopsis of the UNDP Human Development Report 2019 in Bangla. He said, “Human development report was inaugurated in 1990, the report was published in Bangla next year.”

The newly launched Bangla font download is now available on UNDP website.
