The British Council and the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) signed a grant contract under “Establishing an Employer led Labour Market Secretariat-ELMS” project yesterday. 

The ELMS project aims at developing the Occupational Classification Standard for agriculture, construction and tourism sector with the Labour Market Information system and focuses on addressing the problems faced by employers due to lack of statistics and information regarding labour market. It also aims for changing the overall Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system and management of demand and supply of labour market in the country.

The project will be implemented by the FNCCI in collaboration with the Confederation of Nepalese Industries (CNI), Federation of Nepalese Cottage and Small Industries (FNCSI), Hotel Association Nepal (HAN) and Federation of Contractors' Associations of Nepal in support from Dakchyata: TVET Practical Partnership managed by the British Council and funded by the European Union in Nepal.
