President for plans to make vocational centres for dislocated people financially sustainable.

ISLAMABAD, June 26, 2009 (Balochistan Times) -- President Asif Ali Zardari on Friday directed the Frontier government to devise a plan for providing financial assistance on regular basis to the technical vocational training centres set up in the province for the dislocated people. The National Vocational and Technical Training Commission is operating a number of vocational centres in the province for the internally displaced persons. Spokesperson of the President former Senator Farhatullah Babar said that while going through different projects developed for the rehabilitation of the displaced persons the President noted that the vocational training centres would not be sustainable if they were not linked up to some viable financial support program. President Zardari therefore directed the provincial government to devise a well thought-out plan to link up these vocational technical centres with some suitable financial support program to make them viable and sustainable. The directive said that apart from exploring the financial support programs in the public sector, the plan should also consider involving the private sector in devising the plan, the spokesperson said. The directive further asked the Frontier government to keep the Presidency posted with the financial support program for the technical vocational centres set up for the IDPs.
