Aug 16, Colombo: The Government of Germany has agreed to finance a project to establish a fully-fledged technical training center in Kilinochchi District of Sri Lanka's Northern Province.

The Government of Germany has already signed an agreement with the Government of Sri Lanka in respect of the project for the establishment of Sri Lanka German Training Institute (SLGTI) in the former rebel stronghold under the National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Skills Development.

Construction of the Institute is expected to commence in October 2014. The project at a cost of Rs.700 million (approximately Euro 04 million) will be completed in 2015.

The Institute is expected to enhance vocational skills training and employment opportunities for the people in the Northern Province, including secondary school leavers, unemployed or underemployed youth, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and population groups particularly affected by the war, including war widows.

The Cabinet has granted approval to the proposal made by Minister of Youth Affairs and Skills Development Dullas Alahapperuma to proceed with the related activities on the project.
