The improved TVET system had meant more semi-skilled and skilled workers who had for example an international recognized qualification. The project had already assisted in the development of a draft Bangladesh National Technical and Vocational Qualifications Framework. The government had been encouraged to have these qualifications aligned with those in countries to which Bangladeshi workers were recruited. For that purpose, the study was designed to figure out the existing and potential demand of Bangladeshi skilled and semi-skilled labor in those countries. The objective of the study was to begin capacity building of BMET so it could determine international labor demand on a regular basis. The study would also identify the demand for skilled and semi-skilled labor in countries which typically recruited such workers.
The study was considered capturing both quantitative and qualitative data from available sources to achieve the overall objective of the assignment. The data has been collected to configure existing demand of Bangladeshi skilled and semi-skilled labor in typical labor importing countries. The collected data also projected Bangladeshi labor demand for about next 5 years in the countries of current destination of Bangladeshi migrants and also the study projected potential demand of Bangladeshi labor in abroad.
