This TVET partnership is to enhance meaningful engagement of the private sector for quality and market-relevant TEVT systems.
The private sector engagement in TEVT is mainly for getting a skilled workforce compatible with work in the business and industry requirements.

The FNCCI, a leading association of the private sector of Nepal aims to contribute to the employment generation goal of the Nation by promoting relevant skills.
