During the meeting, the groups agreed on several future activities:

  • a memorandum of understanding to define the mechanisms of cooperation;
  • delivering lecture presentations on OSH topics during workshops and seminars arranged by NAVTTC;
  • developing train-the-trainer programs for individuals implementing OSH training modules in these training centers.

NAVTTC strives to educate and support people across Pakistan by implementing skill development training to more than 100,000 youths at its 700 training centers across Pakistan.

Recently, the chapter met with the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to encourage OSH legislation.
