ISLAMABAD (APP) - President Asif Ali Zardari on Tuesday advised the government to set up a Task Force to formulate concrete proposals for enhancing the technical and vocational skills of the youth to meet the requirements of both the national and overseas job markets. He said this during a briefing on the vocational and technical training for skill development in the Presidency today. The meeting, which was jointly presided over by President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani, was attended by Minister for Education Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani, Minister for Industries and Production Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Ms. Sherry Rehman, Minister for Labour and Manpower Syed Khurshid Ahmed Shah, Advisor to PM on Finance Shaukat Tarin, Minister of State for Economic Affairs Mrs Hina Rabbani Khar, Special Assistant to PM Mrs Shahnaz Wazir Ali, Special Assistant to PM on Water Resources Kamal Majidullah and senior officials of the relevant ministries. The Saudi Ambassador in Islamabad Ali Saeed Awad Asseri also attended the meeting by special invitation. The President said that a technically trained human resource base was one of the greatest assets of Pakistan and there was a need to focus on producing large scale fully trained and skilled manpower to meet growing development challenges the country was faced with. The President said that the body responsible for vocational and technical education in the country should also consider how to attract private sector into imparting technical skills to our youth. He said that the international job market was shrinking and Pakistan could penetrate the market deeply only if it provided suitably qualified and trained workers and technicians that fulfilled the requirements of job markets in the Middle East, Europe and America. The President said that it was an irony that while the trainees could not find jobs in the market, the employers were looking for skills needed for their enterprises to grow. "There is some disconnect somewhere which points to the need for a major overhaul and review of the country's vocational and technical training system". He said that over 92 million boys and girls in Pakistan were below 25 years age and would be entering the job market with high expectations. When they find that they cannot get jobs they will be frustrated creating social and political unrest, he said. "Failed expectations result in frustrations and create a breeding ground for social and political unrest" the President said. The Prime Minister said that the government will soon set up a Task Force to undertake a massive overhaul of the technical training system. He said that representatives from relevant ministries including Education, Labour and Manpower and Foreign Office will be included in the Task Force which would be required to submit its recommendations in the shortest possible time.
