USAID to Help Outsource IT Jobs to Sri Lanka

Friday, August 06, 2010

The U.S. Agency for International Development is planning to spend $10 million in taxpayer money on a jobs program that will increase the outsourcing of well-paid American jobs. The funds are part of a $36 million effort by USAID to train 3,000 workers in Sri Lanka to become IT specialists.

USAID will partner with Sri Lankan businesses to teach workers advanced IT skills like Java programming, as well as how to work in a call center and improve their English. Information Week also reported that USAID is planning to set up an IT program in Armenia.
While running for president, Barack Obama argued that the government should do more to keep hi-tech jobs in IT, biological sciences, and green energy in the U.S.
