Libya is in for a treat as the TriHuman Resources Development Service of Korea will for the first time recruit industrial trainees and train them in technology in the drive to fuel economic development in Libya.
The HRD Korea signed a contract worth US$94.8 million on 21 October 2013 with the Libyan Ministry of Labout and the WAC from the office of Libya’s Prime Minister.
The new initiative comes at a time when Libya is two years later on still recovering from the late Gaddafi’s over 40 years dictatorship rule. Nevertheless, through this contract, the Korean organization would provide six months of technical training in 14 fields including automobiles, electricity, mechanics, welding, electronics and plumbing to more than 1,300 new trainees selected and sent to Korea by the Libyan Ministry of Labour, notes Korean business portal “Business Korea”.
The organization would also receive US$13.6 million from Libya to build a vocational education and training centre for 900 people in Benghazi Libya. Apart from erecting a replica of the Korean training centre, HRD Korea would be in charge of placing orders and managing the construction as well as delivering the necessary expertise for the initial operation of the centre, reports say.
