Introduction
"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another exciting GDLN event. This is Session One of the Human Resource Development Series. My name is Victor Hsu. I am honored to serve as a moderator today. I am speaking to you from Seoul, from the KDI School of Public Policy and Management. KDIS, the Word Bank, and the Tokyo Development Learning Center are co-hosting today’s event. The focus of our distinguished panel is on vocational training and economic development, with case studies on Korea and Japan, and the World Bank perspective on technical vocational and education training. We are in for quite an intellectual feast. Ladies and gentlemen, you and I have been extremely fortunate to have had excellent education which opens many doors of opportunity for us. But many of our own people do not enjoy such a privilege as they try to lift themselves out of the jaws of poverty. And if our countries are striving to attain the MDGs, an important ingredient in the national strategy is invariably education, be it formal, non-formal, technical, or vocational. Investment in equipping human capital, more than ever, is perceived as a ‘sine qua non’ for achieving economic growth, economic development, and, yes, human development. Today’s panel members will share with us the best practices of vocational education development, and shed light on the critical linkage between vocational training and broad based sustainable national development. We have a large audience today located in the Asia Pacific countries and connecting altogether twenty sites. Thank you, Pakistan and India, for sacrificing your leisurely breakfast to participate. Before proceeding to the introduction of each site, let me do some housekeeping. First of all, to enable an optimal video conferencing environment, kindly keep your mic muted unless you have been recognized to speak. I am sure you are quite familiar with this reminder by now. Second, each site has a facilitator. The facilitators know about the order of sites which will be called on to pose questions to the panelists. We have divided after ten countries, so that each country will have an equal amount of time, that is fifteen minutes. And each panelist is allotted twenty minutes, and at the end of our session, we have set aside about twenty three minutes for all the sites to pose questions. I will give priority to countries or sites that have not had an even share of floor time. So, let’s begin. I am going to call on the facilitators to introduce their site, but I’d like to begin with our here at the KDI School. Our facilitator is delayed, so I have to take the role to say that we expect about forty participants in this conference video-hall, and we have among us a mixture of students and professors. May I call upon the, I think I’ll go in alphabetical order, Bangladesh to introduce the site. Mr. Choudhury? “
“Yes, sir, here. A very good morning to you. We are in the BRAC University, GDLN center, and we have about twenty, we are expecting about fifteen to twenty participants, so, most of them are already here. Fifteen are already here. So, one-two more might be coming in few minutes. We are ready to receive you. We are listening to you, and also receiving your pictures all clear, thank you. “
“Thank you, Mr. Choudhury. China does not have participants except for our speaker, Dr. Liang, so we move then to India. Col Jamwal, please? “
“Very good morning. I am Col Jamwal from Administrative Staff College of India at Hyderabad. We are here right now six people, but more, we believe, will be joining. Because it's early morning here in Hyderabad, and it is a bit raining also. So we are all listening to you, and we will be there for active participation at this educative program. Thank you. “
“Thank you very much. Next we move on to Japan to Tomoyuki Naito, please. “
