“Labour force is declining now in many countries all over the world. Nonetheless, we have a 70 percent labor force in our country. If we transform them into manpower, you will not have to run after jobs. Youths can transform themselves into manpower and create employment with this target,” said the minister.
The state minister said this while speaking at the inauguration program of Rajshahi Divisional Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Summit at Singra Upazila of Natore district.
Natore Deputy Commissioner Abu Naser Bhuiyan, Superintendent of Police Saifur Rahman, Bangladesh Association of Contact Centre and Outsourcing (BACCO) President Wahed Sharif, General Secretary Towhid Hossain and others were present on the occasion.
