HR Development Key for 2015 AEC: Adviser

Myanmar should focus on boosting its human resources capacity to prepare itself for the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015, according to Dr Aung Tun Thet, the presidential economic adviser.
“In preparation for the upcoming AEC in 2015, companies should promote the technology sector and increase its human resource capacity,” said Dr Aung Tun Thet, before adding that measures should also be taken to enhance the skill set of employees.
“Our country is full of natural resources. If we have enough money, then the technological need is simple to fill,” said U Lin Htoo, an entrepreneur. “In this situation, we face a big challenge when it comes to competing with foreign companies, so at the present time workers should focus on being competent in their jobs,” he added.
Employment agencies have also revealed that they are expecting an increase in employment fairs in the coming years, as an increasing number of foreign companies look towards Myanmar as a business destination.
“Before 2015, we will arrange a number of discussions and shows that are hosted with the aim of giving Myanmar youths job opportunities in foreign companies,” said Ko Kyaw Zan, from a Yangon-based employment agencies. “I would like to advise Myanmar youths to use these opportunities carefully, otherwise we cannot compete with foreign workers who will come to Myanmar in 2015,” he added.
