Preface

The main purpose of the UNESCO UNEVOC Regional Meeting held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 12th - 15th September 1994 was to allow researchers undertaking Country Case Studies for the UNESCO UNEVOC Case Studies on Technical and Vocational Education in Asia and the Pacific project, and representatives of UNESCO PROAP Bangkok, to meet to discuss the Country Case Studies. The main focus of this project was investigation of factors which impinged upon the status of TVE in these countries.

Researchers from Australia, Bangladesh, China, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam attended the Regional Meeting.

The outcome of this Regional Meeting was recommendations pertaining to possible directions to improve the status of technical and vocational education in the Asia and the Pacific Region.

These recommendations provide advice to UNESCO, which might also be of assistance to regional governments in the planning process for improvements to the technical and vocational education system in individual countries.

On the final day of the Regional Meeting, a Report was presented to Delegates by the Exemplar Curriculum Working Group which has been developing an Entrepreneurial Skills for Small Business Curriculum.
