It solves the problem of unemployment by supplying the industries with a large number of trained workers. A country can also increase its material resources through technical education. It imparts dexterity, skill, quickness, attention to detail, habit of neatness and order. People begin to have faith in the dignity of labor. Another important practical advantage of technical education is that when we have our own technicians and technical education, a lot of foreign exchange would be saved or earned.
We can also earn foreign exchanges by sending our technicians to other countries. Thus technical education makes a country rich, prosperous and resourceful. Today all the advanced and developed countries of the world like Japan, England, Russia, America, France and Germany etc. attach much importance to technical education. These countries are highly industrialized and their prosperity and progress is the result of their technology. In our country there is plenty or raw-material but people lack technology.
That is why they cannot reap full advantage of their material, by changing it into finished articles. The solution to this sad state of affairs is that we must switch our economy from agriculture to industry. Technical and vocational centers should be opened even in small cities to produce skilled workers and technicians. Our government is giving full attention to the technical education. New technical institutes and engineering colleges are being established.
