He mentioned that the findings and policy recommendations which are discussed through the workshop would serve a critical role to develop and implement quality TVET system in the region.

Mr. Hee-seog Kwon, Ambassador of Korea Mission to ASEAN, expressed his gratitude for all the contributors for their sound dedication and contribution to the project delivery. He hoped that the Regional Report will become a monumental milestone to accelerate further cooperation among AMS for socio-economic development. Furthermore, he stated that Korea would continuously cooperate with AMS for shared prosperity by promoting competitive human resource for a better future.

National Resource Persons (NPRs) from ten AMS presented the findings from the ten case studies exploring the national TVET responsiveness. In addition to that, the Regional Report which integrates the findings from ten AMS is discussed by the research team participating in the project.

The 2nd Regional Workshop is expected to encourage all participants to exchange their inputs and feedbacks on the presented outputs of case studies, thereby improving the quality of Regional Report and contributing to benefitting ASEAN Community from the output of the project.
