MOSCOW, December 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russia has launched a programme on strengthening primary and secondary vocational education systems and supporting the development of labour markets in the CIS, Asia and the Middle East, Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak told the international high-level conference on decent work on Tuesday.

This is Russia’s contribution to the G20 Training Strategy jointly implemented with the International Labour Organization, he said.

The G20 Training Strategy was adopted by leaders at their summit in Toronto in June 2010.

“Three priorities were set within the framework of Russia’s programme on strengthening primary and secondary vocational education systems and supporting the development of labour markets in the CIS, Asia and the Middle East,” Storchak said.

First, it is necessary to adjust national vocational education systems to the requirements of the labour market. Second, methods for training managers of vocational education systems and third, programmes for assessing and forecasting the labour market needs should be created, Storchak said.

Russia made an 8 million dollar special purpose contribution to the ILO to implement the programme in 2012-2014.
