Germny to Help Pakistan Streamline Its TVET Sector with the International Lavor Market
Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar, Special Assistant to the Prime
Minister on Youth Affairs, along with Syed Zulfikar Bukhari, Special Assistant to the Prime
Minister on Human Resource Development & Overseas Pakistanis, held a meeting with H.E.
Mr. Martin Kobler, German Ambassador to Pakistan, in order to figure out human resource
needs of the international labor market so that Pakistan could align its technical and vocational
training system with the current and emerging skill sets required by the industry in labor-
destination countries in the Gulf, European Union and the Far East Asia.
It was highlighted in the meeting that Pakistan is one of the top human resource surplus
countries in the world. It is high time to invest in the technical and vocational training of the
youth as per the need of international job market to export our surplus human resource to
target destinations in the Gulf region, European Union countries especially Germany, Far East
Asian countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea and Japan.
It was also highlighted that Pakistan can greatly benefit from the proposed German law on the
easy immigration of skilled workforce if it invests aggressively in training its youth in high end
technologies. This new immigration law is expected to be in force by 2020. Moreover, it was
agreed upon that Pakistan should also invest in training its abundant human resources in
CPEC related industries to meet their workforce demand. These Government interventions in
human resource development will not only make the TVET sector demand and quality driven,
but will also lead to creation of job opportunities for the youth not only in the domestic but
international job market.
Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar thanked the German Ambassador for his valuable input in
developing an effective TVET sector in Pakistan which would be responsive to the emerging
needs of the labor market for creating better opportunities for youth empowerment and
