The role of ASEAN Skills Competition in
enhancement of ASEAN members’ competitiveness
ASEAN SKILLS COMPETITION (ASC) was initiated in
1993 at the ILO/APSDEP meeting in Japan, where it
was agreed that there be a biennial skill competition
among ASEAN member countries. Such competition
is to promote and upgrade skills standards in the
region and consequently to the international level,
which is organized on a cost-sharing basis.
To date there are 10 participating countries and 21
skill areas.
The objectives of the ASEAN Skills Competition are
1. To promote the development of quality vocational and technical and
work values among the youth and skilled workers
2. To foster technical cooperation in vocational/technical education and
training between member countries
3. To encourage close cooperation among government, industries,
employers and workers organizations and vocational training institutions
4. ASC will pave the way for work excellence and development of high
skilled workers
