Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday put emphasis on allocating more fund for technical and vocational training from the Prime Minister’s Education Assistance Trust to develop a skilled and efficient generation.

"Skilled and efficient youths can be entrepreneurs instead of running after jobs. We should change the mindset to run after for jobs," she said at the 6th advisory council members’ meeting of Prime Minister’s Education Assistance Trust at her office, reports UNB.

Sheikh Hasina, also Chief Patron of the advisory council of the trust, said the government formed it to give educational assistance to talented but poor students.

Stressing the need for updating information on stipends, she directed the authorities to give responsibilities to this end upon the officials of the concerned ministry.
