The National Emerging Industries Agreement (PNEI) identified increasing demand for skilled workers in a range of industries. These include off-shoring, automobile, textile, agro-business, aeronautics and electronics. In addition other sector-specific plans identify a need for more skilled workers in industries including distribution, tourism, fisheries, logistics, crafts and agriculture.
The British Council is working in partnership with representatives from these sectors. Our aim is to support the development of new education and qualification systems that meet the needs of local employers, produce highly-skilled workers and fulfil the ambitions of the PNEI.
