Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam expects a place in Top Three at the 11th ASEAN Skills Competition (ASC) which will take place at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang of Malaysia from September 19-29.

A see-off ceremony for the Vietnamese delegation to the event was held by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) in Hanoi on September 18.

The 109-member delegation comprises 32 technology experts working in juries, and 44 competitors selected from a national skill competition who will show off their talents at 22 out of 25 categories of the regional round.

MoLISA Deputy Minister Doan Mau Diep expressed his belief that the Vietnamese contestants will continue to confirm their position at the event, contributing to elevating the country’s prestige on the world arena.

The 11 th ASC draws the participation of 214 experts and 280 competitors from ASEAN member countries, except Brunei. Its opening ceremony is scheduled for September 23.

The ASC is the centre piece for showcasing the 'best-of-the-best' young ASEAN skilled talents. The ASC provides the impetus for participating ASEAN countries to develop motivated and high-performing skilled workers. It also serves as an ideal platform of collaboration within the skills community in ASEAN as the region strives to enhance the delivery of technical and vocational education and training.

Last year, Vietnam claimed the first place at the 10 th ASC, which it hosted, with 15 gold, six silver and six bronze medals.-VNA
