According to the Libyan Herald, a new vocational and educational training center is to be built in Benghazi by the Human Resources Development Service of Korea (HRD Korea), in a project funded by the Libyan government.
The $13.6 million deal will see HRD Korea build an institute that is an exact replica of a centre in South Korea. When it's completed, the center will accommodate approximately 900 students.
HRD Korea has also signed a $94.8 million contract with the Libyan Ministry of Labour and the Warrior Affairs Commission (WAC) to send Libyans to South Korea to study in vocational training programs.
The contract for this vocational education and training export project between HRD Korea and the Ministry of Labour was signed two days ago. This opportunity will allow close to 1,400 Libyans, chosen by the Ministry of Labour, to undertake six-months of vocational training courses in South Korea. Fields of study for those chosen to participate include electronics, mechanics, welding and plumbing.
