FIEDMC, GCUF To Ensure Provision Of Skilled Manpower


LAHORE– Faisalabad Industrial Estate Development and Management Company (FIEDMC) Chairman Mian Kashif Ashfaq Saturday said the government is fully committed to reforming the skill sector of the country that will not only ensure a prosperous future for young people but also the country.

He expressed these views while talking to Prof Dr Shahid Kamal, Vice-Chancellor of Government College University Faisalabad (GCUF) and both FIEDMC and GCUF will expedite cooperation and coordination to ensure provision of quality skilled manpower to the industry.

There was a consensus between the two sides that the promotion of technical education was a pre-requisite to the much-needed GDP growth. They also agreed to hold regular meetings for curricula review keeping in view the requirement of the industry.

This primary objective of this venture is to promote technical and vocational education among the laborers working in CPEC’s Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and the rest of the industry.

Mian Kashif Ashfaq said that it was high time that industrialists should avail themselves of facilities being offered by GCUF. He said the GCUF would ensure provision of rightly skilled manpower to the local industry, but the industry would also have to do the needful as the technical authority needed proper and consistent support from our business community to start new projects and new courses.

He said that well trained manpower not only reduces the cost of production but also play a vital role in achieving the desired and required economic goals as it would lead to quality production, which ultimately will create global demand.

VC Prof Dr Shahid Kamal on this occasion said the collaboration between the two institutions would ultimately bridge a skill gap which would lead to a quantum jump in exports of the country, by value addition and responding to technological shift in manufacturing and facing the challenges of globalization.
