President Adama Barrow has called on the World Bank and other stakeholders to support his administration's quest to develop Technical and Vocational Education and Training as a means to quell the menace of irregular migration and rural-urban drift.
Barrow was speaking during the Ministerial Project Steering Committee meeting and the 8th in-person regional workshop on the ACE impact project held at Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara Conference Centre in Bijilo.
"Higher education is a critical factor for development. For this reason, I am convinced that the discussions that will be held during the workshop will provide realistic recommendations and solutions to the current health, economic, and food-security challenges of our respective countries." he said.
