The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) has called for building a skilled workforce to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Importance should be given to setting up technical and vocational training centres in every district and upazila along with conventional educational institutions, it said.
FBCCI made the call during the second meeting of its Standing Committee on National Economic Policy and Planning, 8th Five Year Plan, SDGs, and Vision 2041 in Dhaka Thursday.
FBCCI Senior Vice-President Mostofa Azad Chowdhury Babu said: “There is no alternative to building a skilled workforce to further accelerate our efforts to achieve the SDGs.
Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Sameer Sattar said foreign investment is very important in achieving the SDGs.
Also, he emphasised increasing foreign investments, building a skilled manpower, and developing non-conventional sectors.
