Education Minister DrDipuMoni said on Wednesday the number of educated unemployed graduates are increasing for the lack of technical and vocational education, reports UNB.

The education minister made the remarks while speaking as the chief guest at an online discussion meeting on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day 2020, organised by the National Skills Development Authority at the Prime Minister's Office in the morning.

"A large number of students are achieving Honours and Mastersdegree from our education system, but is there demand of such numbers in job market? Now we need to consider it," said the minister.

The government no longer wants to create such educated unemployed workforce. Considering the issue, the government has given top priority to technical and vocational education and has streamlined the overall education system, said Dipu Moni.
