75,000 IT professionals to be trained in 3 years: Joy
19 March 2016, Nirapad News: Prime Minister’s Information and Communication Advisor Sajeeb Wajed Joy has said that the government has targeted to train 75,000 professionals for the IT sector to counter the shortage of skilled manpower in the sector. ”
The biggest challenge that Bangladesh is facing in the IT sector development is shortage of skilled manpower as the country could not develop enough IT labour force that it needs…the number is limited,” he said in an interview with CeBIT Podcast in Germany on Thursday. ”
Keeping this in mind our government has set a target to train up 75,000 IT professionals within next three years but that is a fraction in comparison to the garment sector where millions of manpower are employed…you know that students studying in the relevant subject needs three or four years to complete the course.
We are trying to catch up them,” he added. Joy is now in Hanover, Germany, for attending the Centre for Office Automation, Information Technology and Telecommunication (CeBIT) Expo, according to a news agency.
