At the meeting, the Union Minister said that the vocational education system is career-oriented vocational education.
“The production of skilled workers required for the workplaces is essential for industrial development and sustainable development. It supports economic development and poverty alleviation,” Union Minister Dr Myo Thein Kyaw said.
“However, as new technologies are evolving on a daily basis, new jobs are emerging in some areas and new skills are needed. There are challenges in many countries in producing skilled workers who can meet the needs of the workplaces. In doing so, it is necessary for strong cooperation from all sectors.
“Views of communities, supports of the government and funding are key requirements for the establishment of an appropriate vocational education system. Regional cooperation is one way to address these issues.
“Therefore, the China-ASEAN Vocational Education Fair and Forum welcomes the promotion of regional economic cooperation and the emergence of qualified workers.
“The forum aims to promote long-term cooperation between China and ASEAN in vocational education. It is hoped that detailed and practical discussions will be held in various forms to share good practices,” the Union Minister added.
The Union Minister continued that the forum, with the joint efforts of China and ASEAN, would set a good example of cooperation in promoting mutual learning and the China-ASEAN cooperation programmes would continue to be implemented for mutually beneficial results.
