Human Resources for Industrial Development; Some Aspects of Policy and Planning. Studies and Reports, New Series, No. 71.
International Labour Office, Geneva (Switzerland).
Major manpower and social problems encountered by developing countries in the process of industrial development, and action to be taken both at the national and international levels comprise the substantive focus of this document. The document is a collection of papers prepared by the International Labor Office. Part I, "Manpower for Industry," addresses problems such as the determination of goals, quantitative and qualitative, to be achieved in the education and training of skilled industrial manpower; the special role of industry itself in development of skills; and measures to insure the best possible use of available skilled manpower. Part II, "Other Policy Issues" concerns the active participation of different social groups in industrialization, job displacement resulting from industrialization, and sharing the proceeds of industrial development. Three types of international action were discussed: (1) provision of advice, equipment, and qualified technical personnel under technical cooperation programs, bilateral and multi-lateral, (2) financial assistance, and (3) joint action by developing countries which share common problems.
