National Planning of Vocational and Technical Training, 1972.
Colombo Plan Bureau (Sri Lanka).
This document contains the proceedings of the fifth of a series of seminars developed by the Colombo Plan Bureau to serve as a catalyst in the planning and development of skilled manpower in the Colombo region of south and southeast Asia. The seminars resulted from a realization that the shortage of technical and skilled manpower in the area is mainly due to the inadequacy of existing facilities and the lack of a well-planned program to meet manpower needs. Some 52 persons representing governmental agencies, the university, technical education, management development institutions, industry, and foreign experts attended the seminar. Discussions at the meetings centered around four working papers: (1) "The Basic Elements in a National Plan for Vocational and Technical Training" by G. Espinosa, (2) "Manpower Requirements in Planning Vocational and Technical Training in Nepal" by K. Tuladhar, and (3) "The Role of Industry as a User and Producer of Technically Trained Personnel in Nepal" by J. Shrestha. Texts of the main speeches, reactionary statements, names of participants, addresses given by other participants, and background information providing the framework for the seminar are included.
