Rwandan private sector has been called upon to invest more in TVET so as to have a potential private sector-led and Knowledge-based economy.
The call was made by the minister of public service and labour Anastase Murekezi while officially opening the 2012 TVET symposium under the theme ‘Involvement of the private sector in the promotion and implementation of TVET’.
Making the presentation on TVET reform in Rwanda, the director of partnership in WDA Didier Munezero encouraged all stakeholders to help change people’s mind-set so as to develop Rwanda’s economy through TVET.
He cited out key development priority sectors incorporated in TVET which include ICT, Hospitality and Tourism, Film industry, Mining, renewable energy, construction to mention but a few.
Donatien Mungwarareba an official from private Sector Federation (PSF) shared with participants the programs put in place to support upcoming and young entrepreneurs to grow up into large companies.
The ongoing symposium aims to raise awareness among private sector companies to utilize better the potential of TVET graduates and provide employment chances for female students too.
This point was also stressed by the Minister of Labour Anastase Murekezi who called on the private sector to always give TVET final students opportunity for industrial attachment.
The 2012 symposium has also raised the challenge on reinforcing the marketing campaign to create awareness on TVET.
Both WDA and PSF have pledged to put more efforts in making more publicity for TVET through various channels of communication.
