Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Ladies and gentlemen,

This afternoon, we will follow up our last meeting on vocational education and training. I really hope for more significant improvements, so we would definitely be able to meet our target. It is the demographic bonus that will reach its peak in around 2030. Thus, we can really receive the benefits of it and develop human resources massively. And the key is a measure for improvement, an integrated reform in vocational education and trainings.

I think that is my introductory remarks. However, once again, we need concrete actions. The trainings should hopefully upgrade skills of our human resources, so our budget will be well-spent for concrete benefits.

I conclude my remarks here.(Public Relation Division of Cabinet Secretariat)(SSA/AW/YM/Naster)
