Title:Manpower planning in East Africa
Author:Rado, E.R.ISNI
Periodical:East African Economic Review
Geographic term:East Africa
Subject:labour force
Abstract:After listing the factors which, particularly in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, have several implications for manpower planning and policy, the author discusses the relationship between the development of education and the availability of manpower. The benefits of much of the development in East Africa during the past decade accrued to the small minority which had been fortunate enough to obtain 12 or more years of education and/or an urban job. After voicing fundamental doubt on the employment policy of the East African governments the author examines the ways in which the three East African manpower plans tackle long-run and short-run manpower requirements. The Uganda plan takes a long-term view and has the most plausible theoretical base, but lacks the depth of detailed knowledge of the labour market which is displayed in the analysis and recommendations of the Kenya and Tanzania plans.
