LAHORE: The four-day “Refresher Training of Trainers” session conducted by ILO Pakistan with the collaboration of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) at HEC Regional Campus concluded here yesterday with the distribution of completion certificates among the participants.

The training was part of the Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB) programme, which is ILO's global management-training initiative focussing on starting and improving small businesses as a strategy for creating more and better employment, particularly in emerging economies. The overall SIYB objective is to contribute to the economic development by establishing/strengthening enterprises and creating new and better jobs.–PR
