International Skills Forum
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has a long track record in assisting its developing member countries (DMCs) achieve the goal of quality education for all. Despite the remarkable achievements in the education sector, the Asia Pacific region still faces challenges that threaten its social and economic growth.
In line with its commitment of helping ensure inclusive, equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities, ADB has been organizing the International Skills Forum that serves as a venue to exchange good practices, share innovative ideas, and promote collaboration among experts, development practitioners, policy makers, government agencies, and the private sector.
