‘Foreign jobs galore for skilled Lankans’

Productivity in the construction sector is essential for the country's development. It is necessary to have productive equipment and human resources for the productivity of the construction sector, said Sri Lanka Open University Civil Engineering Department head Prof M T Pallewatte.

Participating at a media awareness programme jointly organised by the Construction Equipment Training Centre (CETRAC) and the Operator Training College at the CETRAC auditorium last week, Prof Pallewatte said that CETRAC plays a key role in the construction sector.

“Sri Lanka, last year, experienced a rapid growth in the construction field. The lack of skilled labour is the main problem in the construction field. There are a large number of employment opportunities for skilled Sri Lankans in foreign countries. But we do not have enough workers to meet the demand,” he said.

It is important to enhance knowledge in every field to realise main objectives in the Mahinda Chinthanaya to make Sri Lanka a knowledge hub,” he said. CERTRAC was established by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in 1997 and handed over to the ICTAD management in 2001.

Since it was established, CETRAC has been maintaining a high reputation in training school leavers, industry workers and professionals in the maintenance and management of construction equipment under the vision to become the hub of training and consultancy related to the construction equipment plant and machinery in Sri Lanka.
