Experts said the country will require 20 lakh skilled manpower in the IT sector by 2030, given that every organisation is now dependent on technology.
Speaking at a human resource summit, they further said the advancement of any organisation in the competitive world depends on skilled workers as growth of profits and long-term sustainability need a time-befitting human resource management.
The Institute of Personnel Management (IPM) organised the summit in the city on Friday, said a press release.
At the summit's inaugural session, Hosne Ara Begum, managing director of Bangladesh High-Tech Park Authority, said every institution was dependent on technology and it was not possible to go ahead without strong human force in this sector.
“The government has taken various schemes to train the young generation as the country will need 2 million of skilled manpower in the IT sector by 2030,” she said.
She also said many people were working abroad with good reputation obtaining training under the government's various training schemes.
“Even foreign investors want skilled manpower. So, it also requires private initiatives to create skilled workforce and the IPM can play an important role in this regard,” Begum said.
IPM President Anwarul Azim highlighted the activities of the organisation.
Earlier, its secretary general, Shakil Meraj, delivered the inaugural speech.
Among others, Mosharraf Hossain, president of the Federation of Bangladesh Human Resource Organizations, and IPM founder director, Osman Gani, spoke on the occasion.
