Chairman of the Bahrain Society of the Private Training Institutes (BSPTI), Nawaf Mohammed Al Jishi, affirmed that training institutes can play a prominent role in promoting the Kingdom’s leadership in the Human Development Index (HDI) of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
«Bahrain has maintained its position in the ‘very high human development’ category of the index, based on its average income, education, and the participation of women in the workforce. Training institutes play a significant role in linking education and practical training, in addition to training of Bahrainis helps them improve their income levels by finding a job opportunity or career advancement. In addition, women represent the most extensive part of the total number of trainees, which qualifies them for greater participation in the labor market,” said Mr. Al Jishi.
In UNDP’s report which was recently released, it indicated that between 2014 and 2019, Bahrain has gone up six positions, making it the Arab country with the second-largest upwards leap in terms of the HDI ranking.
