Education Minister Dipu Moni has underscored the need to build tech-based skilled human resources and said that enrollment rate in technical education in Bangladesh will be raised to 50 percent by 2050.
"Our government has set a target to increase the enrollment rate in technical education to 50 percent by 2050, to build technology based skilled human resources to cope with the fourth industrial revolution of artificial intelligence," Dipu Moni said.
The education minister came up with the observation while addressing an online seminar on "the fourth industrial revolution and the importance of technical education" organised by Bangladesh Technical Education Board in Dhaka today.
"The fourth industrial revolution is a challenge for us. For the revolution, many traditional jobs will vanish but new doors of opportunity will open up in the job field. We want to turn the challenge into possibility," she said.
