“ The Role of Education in Economic Development ”
“ Education is now the number one economic priority in today’s global economy.” – John Naisbitt, Author of Megatrends
The importance of knowledge and learning has been recognized since the beginning of time. Education in every sense is one of the fundamental factors of development and enriches people’s understanding of themselves and the world. Education refers to the development of human skills and knowledge of the people or labour force. It is not only the quantitative expansion of educational opportunities but also the qualitative improvement of the type of education which is imparted to the labour force that holds the key to economic development. Because of its significant contribution to economic development, education has been called as human capital and expenditure on education of the people as an investment in man or human capital.
So the human capital and physical capital are both required for economic development and that each has a positive external effect on the productivity of the other. To end with Education is the key to solve every problem, no nation could achieve sustainable economic development without substantial investment in human capital. Therefore, Education and economy are interrelated to play a very crucial role in securing economic and social progress in the society.
Thus, this panel discussion featuring prominent economists and other experts from around the world will provide the opportunity to have your questions and doubts cleared during the Q & A session subsequent to the main session.
