Preparations for 10th ASEAN Skills Competition inspected


Colleges, selected as venues for the 10th ASEAN Skills Competition, are making good preparations for the event, which will be organised in Hanoi from October 19-29.

This was an assessment by a delegation from the steering committee for organisation of the competition while they were inspecting preparation work at the Hanoi Tourism College, College of Urban Works Construction, Hanoi Vocational College of High Technology, and North East College of Technology and Agro-forestry on August 13-14.

Professors and lecturers at the colleges were urged to help competitors improve their knowledge, skills and foreign language standards.

The biennial event aims to promote and improve vocational skills in the region so that they can meet international standards. This year’s event is expected to attract 293 young workers, under the age of 22, from 10 ASEAN member countries competing in 23 occupational skills and two performance skills.

With the participation of 51 competitors in all skills, Vietnam is targeting the first position.

Vietnam first hosted the competition in 2004, topping the medal tally with 13 of the 18 gold medals. At the 9th event in Indonesia in 2012, the country came second place, with 44 workers competing in 22 skills.-VNA
