Manpower and Employment Policies for Developing Countries, Proceedings of the International Manpower Seminar. (7th, September 28-December 10, 1966).
Bussey, Ellen M.
The Seminar, a joint venture of the Agency for International Development and the Labor Department of the United States, brought together 29 participants from 20 developing countries for the purpose of exchanging ideas and experiences on manpower programs and planning efforts. These proceedings are the result of notes taken by reporters during the sessions and are a synthesis of the main points made. Various sessions summarized in the first part of the proceedings deal with current issues which include such problems as excessive population growth, the crisis in food production, and the slow progress by economic development programs. Substantial attention is also given to guidelines for planning, which establish the framework within which manpower planning is expected to be most successful, and strategies for human resources planning. The second portion of the Seminar provided participants with an orientation on United States manpower programs. During the third part of the Seminar, participants acted as manpower advisors to a fictitious country. They diagnosed the problems, established strategies for alleviating them, examined the administrative structure for planning, and evolved a final manpower plan. Tables and charts are included. (ET)
