Thailand’s commissions overseeing basic and vocational education agreed to link their curriculum more closely to create workers for tomorrow’s industries.

The Office of the Vocational Education Commission and Office of the Basic Education Commission signed their pact creating a bridge between basic and vocational education management at an Aug. 5 forum at Science-Based Technology Vocational College in Chon­buri’s Panthong District.

The agreement aims to produce and develop manpower to meet the demands of the country’s development under initiatives such as the Eastern Economic Corridor.

The forum attended by 350 people also included an exhibition showing examples of cooperation between educational institutions OBEC and OVEC.
