A skill experience event was held in Putuo to observe the World Youth Skills Day on Sunday, attracting more than 500 people to the venue.
Skill training lectures were given on automobile maintenance, cell phone photography and food safety.
Altogether five skill experience activities were organized in the district covering western-style baking, fire control safety, flower arrangement, jewelry processing, Internet operation and maintenance and smart building.
The series were a great hit with the sign-up process closed within one day after the registration began.
Currently, Putuo is promoting the craftsmanship among skilled workers. It now has two city-level master workshops, 19 chief technician funding projects and seven high-end skilled talent cultivation bases.
Scale for the talent pool might be further expanded as the social demand rises.
