Abstract
Education is an important means by which the Department of National Defence contributes to the achievement of the government's major objective of national development. The major areas of concern of government policy with respect to the achievement of national development are outlined briefly, and education is identified as an important factor in the achievement of these policy goals. The education and training provided by the Armed Forces is then analyzed in consideration of its contribution to both the economic and social aspects of national development. From this analysis it appears that the Armed Forces' extensive formally organized education and training, which is conducted in order to provide military personnel with the knowledge and skills essential for an effective military force, has an important impact on economic development when qualified military personnel are released into the civilian labour market.
