Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Haruna Iddrisu says the focus of training of graduates in the social sciences has contributed to the high unemployment rate in the country and across Africa.
He said the time has come for conscious effort to be made in the training of more graduates in the technical and vocational sectors of the economy.
Mr Iddrisu said because Ghana and Africa at large lack the needed technical skills to drive their economies, government always fall on expatriates to fill those gaps.
Mr Iddrisu who said this is a speech read on his behalf at a workshop on how to bridge the skills gap in Accra organised by the Africa Center for Economic Transformation, said the perspectives that will be agreed on at the workshop will assist government to formulate the right policies to bridge the gap.
