The principal focus of this paper is on how to meet the challenge arising from the high growth rate of the labour force and its implications for the development strategy for the 1990s. The basic thrust of this paper is that the employment strategy must be seen within the context of an overall strategy for integrated human resources development (HRD) which combines investment in human capital, the “supply side “, with the creation of productive employment, the “demand side”, so as to lead to a fuller utilization of human resources and minimize skill mismatch in the labour market.
