LEED Programme (Local Economic and Employment Development)

Conference: An integrated approach to skills - Designing and financing effective strategies (Shanghai, People's Republic of China)

 

27-29 September 2011, Shanghai (PRC)

 

Jointly organised by the ADBI and the OECD

 

What

The ADBI/OECD conference on Skills development in the post-crisis context, held in Tokyo in September 2010, identified the lack of co-ordination between labour market policy and vocational training as a clear impediment to successful skills development in developing Asia.

It called for further work to be carried out on: i) how integrated skills strategies can be designed in practice; ii) what is the role of various stakeholders locally; iii) what are the implication for ministries of labour, education and the economy; iv) how can integrated skills strategies be financed; v) how can successful partnerships between education and industry be built, reaching SMEs in both the formal and informal economy; and vi) how to build the necessary data.

To address these issues, a follow-up event was organised in Shanghai, PR China. Participants were able to learn from the best practice experience of the city in the design and implementation of an integrated skills strategy, Shanghai Highland of Talent, which takes a balanced approach to attracting, up-skilling and integrating the disadvantaged.
