QUETTA: Provincial Education Secretary Tayab Lehri has said that skilled and talented students are guarantor of the country’s development.

“In future the realm of the country and Balochistan would be in the hands of skilled youngsters because technical expertise imparts self-sufficiency to the young generation,” Lehri said while addressing a seminar of the Prime Minister Youth Skill Development Programme on Saturday.

Former Balochistan Assembly speaker Raheela Durrani said fortunately women now are interested in receiving technical training as skilled women can share the financial burden of their families.

“By getting technical education and training, our women can play their role for the development of Pakistan,”

Durrani said, adding that there are vast opportunities of skills training for women in Balochistan.

On the occasion, National Vocational and Technical Training Commission Director Zulfiqar Jatoi said over 8,000 students are receiving training in 72 institutes of the organisation in 42 skill programmes.
