HÀ NỘI – Việt Nam expects a place among the top three at the 11th ASEAN Skills Competition (ASC) taking place at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang.
A send-off ceremony for the Vietnamese delegation to the September 19-29 event was held by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) in Hà Nội yesterday.
The 109-member delegation comprises 32 technology experts for 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 Doãn Mậu Diệp expressed his belief that the Vietnamese contestants will raise the country’s prestige in the world arena.
The 11th 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 centrepiece for showcasing 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, Việt Nam claimed first place at the 10th ASC, which it hosted, with 15 gold, six silver and six bronze medals. – VNS
