'No alternatives to develop skills for human resource'
Minister for Telecommunications and Information Technology Mustafa Jabbar yesterday said there is no alternative to develop skills in various digital applications to create technology-based human resource.
"We are facing employment crisis due to our traditional education system… that is why the present government is adopting and implementing various innovative programs for the young generation to utilize their merit and creativity along with traditional education," said Jabbar while addressing the inaugural session of a training program at Janata tower here.
Information and Communication Technology Department organized the training program aiming to boost young generation's potentials. "Our young generation is very meritorious to overcome the challenges of the upcoming days…It is very important to create a suitable environment and opportunities for them," he continued. He also urged the trainees to prepare themselves for keeping themselves engaged in the development of the digital era by adopting their own talent and creativity.
