EZs require over 2.7 lakh employees in 5yrs: Study

BSS

Industries in Economic Zones (EZs) across the country will require about 2.60 lakh junior, about 7.03 thousand mid-level and 4.65 thousand senior employees in the next five years, reports BSS. “Considering the fact, it is forecasted that the industries will face problems to recruit about 22.33 thousand junior, about 628 mid-level and 400 senior employees due to lack of training,” said a study of the Access to Information (a2i) programme.

The study titled “A Journey Towards Development Country: Sustainable Employment Opportunities and Skills Demand in Economic Zones” observed that to overcome the challenges, about 24 training centers will be required for the employees of the industries.

“Among these training centers, 22 centers are needed for developing junior level of employees, one training center for mid-level and senior level each. These training centres can develop around 24,000 skilled employees per year,” the study said.

Bangladesh Economic Zones Authority (BEZA) and a2i yesterday unveiled the result of the study at a function at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in the capital.

Principal Coordinator for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Affairs in the Prime Minister’s Office M Abul Kalam Azad attended the function as the chief guest while BEZA Executive Chairman Paban Chowdhury and Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA) Executive Chairman Kazi M Aminul Islam were present as special guests. A2i Project Director Kabir Bin Anwar, presided over the function.

Head of the Result Management of a2i Dr Ramiz Uddin made a power point presentation on the study findings. Abul Kalam Azad called for developing technical education across the country through popularising and modernising the polytechnic institutes for meeting the demand of skilled manpower.

The study suggested BEZA to take initiatives to improve procuring, preparing, repairing, maintaining, marketing and exporting capabilities of the industries and said it is possible by developing skills on a regular basis. “Keraniganj area can be the best place for establishing plastic EZ with having the advantages for carrying the raw materials and the other products using the river route,” it added.
