Date: 25-26 June 2019
Venue: Istanbul - Türkiye

SESRIC organised a workshop on “Digital Skills Development in OIC Countries” on 25-26 June 2019 in Istanbul, Turkey.

Participants from the Relevant Ministries, Digital Transformation Offices and Academia from the OIC Countries attended the Workshop.

The aim was to explore the needs and the capacities of the OIC Countries in the area of digital transformation and exchange of knowledge and best practices to create strategies for developing their workforces and economies and, eventually, harnessing the opportunities of digitalization.

The 2-day programme provided a platform for participants to discuss the impacts, challenges, and opportunities of the new concept of work and identify best practices in digital skill development. Moreover, the participants found the opportunity to introduce their countries’ experiences, implementations and plans during the “Country Case Presentation Sessions” and listen to private sector case examples during the “Technical Round Table Sessions”.

The workshop was funded by The Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (COMCEC), within the 2019 Implementation Period of COMCEC Project Funding.
