Challenge and Solution
Challenges faced by the Bangladeshi Migrant Workers:
Migrant workers speak little English.
Migrant workers have little basic education and few industry-specific skills
Lack of necessary skills of the labor leads to a mismatch in demand and supply and hence they end up with a low wage.
Get deprived of better job opportunities because of low skills, which possess a threat to the Bangladesh economy.
With Bangladesh rapidly progressing towards a middle income country, the demand for a skilled labor force is on the rise. However, despite of very a high unemployment rate, the availability of employable workforce is scarce.
Solution:To address this shortage of market driven skilled manpower, ASDC conducts training programs targeted to increasing skill levels of the workforce to ensure competitiveness in both the labor and product markets. Enriching the labor force with quality vocational training and skills will ensure a more effective workforce and reduce unemployment among the youths.
