Speaking at the Meet the Press series, the Minister said the arrangement is high on government’s agenda.

“Training for export is high on the agenda. I had a meeting with the World Bank more than two weeks ago where they would want Ghana to open up and bring in fellow African countries who are in more dire situation than ourselves like Liberia and Sierra Leone, to train their teachers and export teacher to them in the interim,” he said.

The Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Maafo made a similar call in 2017 during the celebration of International Youth Day.
He said the country was considering sending some of its skilled unemployed youth overseas in exchange for money.

Mr. Maafo said the export will give many unemployed youth an employment opportunity.

“We have to train our nurses for the international level,” he said.

In 2007 when the suggestion was made, the National President of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), Mr. Kwaku Adjei, said it was laudable, and urged the government then to take advantage of the situation and benefit from its skilled professionals.
