Preface

The UNESCO UNEVOC Case Studies on Technical and Vocational Education in Asia and the Pacific project, was commissioned by UNESCO to undertake research into the factors affecting the status of technical and vocational education (TVE) in the Asia and Pacific Region.

Researchers from Australia, Bangladesh, China, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam produced individual Country Case Studies in connection with this project during 1994.

This document seeks to provide an overview and synthesis of the Country Case Studies with particular emphasis on the problems, issues and trends highlighted by researchers involved in this project.

It is necessary for this document to be read in conjunction with the Country Case Studies produced in connection with this project, details of which are contained on pages 6 - 7 of this document.

A Regional Meeting to discuss the Country Case Studies was held in Kuala Lumpur during September 1994, the outcome of which was a series of recommendations pertaining to possible directions that might be pursued by governments in the Asia and Pacific Region, to improve the status of TVE. These recommendations are included in this publication.
