Labour skills assessments are currently being concluded for the Information Communication Technology Platforms and Services as well as the Energy Engineering Sub-Sectors of Trinidad and Tobago.
Confirmation of this comes from Planning and Development Minister Camille Robinson-Regis.
The Planning Minister said over the past seven months, work was undertaken to assess labour skills needs in these two priority sectors.
The Minister said the resulting assessments, with their forecasted skills requirements and recommendations will form the basis for developing sector skills strategies, closing skills gaps and tackling skills shortages in Trinidad and Tobago.
Minister Robinson-Regis said with meeting the demand for forecasted skills along with implementing the proposed policy recommendations, there will be employment generation, enhanced productivity and general economic growth.
The Planning Minister said in this regard, the skills assessments benefit the public and private sectors and by extension all of Trinidad and Tobago.
