Education Minister Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury on Sunday said the new curriculum will contribute to job creation as per the domestic and international market demands.

"The current government has introduced a competency-based and student participation-based curriculum instead of the traditional curriculum," he said.

The minister said this when a delegation led by Edimon Ginting, country director of the Asian Development Bank in Bangladesh paid a courtesy call on him at his office at the Jatiya Sangsad Secretariat on Sunday.

During the meeting, the ADB country director assured the minister of enhanced cooperation for the development of technical and vocational education and teachers training.

He said, the Asian Development Bank will always stand beside Bangladesh to build inclusive and dynamic education management through effective coordination between technical and general streams.

Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury said, ADB can play a role in sharing the teaching-learning experiences of countries in the Asian region in implementing the new curriculum, said a press release.

The ADB country director hoped the new curriculum will help to transform Bangladesh's potential human capital into human resources.
