The World Youth Skills Day (WYSD)-2022 is being observed today in the country as elsewhere across the globe.

The aim of the day is to advocate for skills to highlight the crucial role of skilled youth in addressing today’s most challenging global issues.

In 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared July 15 as World Youth Skills Day to celebrate the strategic importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work and entrepreneurship. 

Since then, World Youth Skills Day events have provided a unique opportunity for dialogue between young people, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions, firms, employers’ and workers’ organizations, policymakers and development partners.

President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages on Thursday on the eve of the day.

Both the President and the Premier wished overall success of all programmes taken on the occasion of WYSD.
