In the past five years, CPSC programs have benefitted about 4,000 senior administrators, trainers, and government officials from the Philippines. In its firm resolve to further strengthen cooperation between CPSC and the host country Philippines, the CPSC Director General Dr. Ramhari Lamichhane paid a visit to the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) on September 23, 2016.
Dr. Lamichhane, who was accompanied by CPSC Faculty Consultant and former CPSC Acting Director General Prof. Dr. G. Kulanthaivel, met Honorable Secretary Atty. Guiling Mamondiong, Director General, TESDA to discuss more about the programs, activities, and services of CPSC and how the Philippines have been contributing and participating in them.
Both Dr. Lamichhane and Atty. Mamondiong are newly appointed heads of their respective organizations. Dr. Lamichhane assumed the CPSC Director General role in September 2016, while Atty. Mamondiong has been the Director General of TESDA since July 2016. Despite being new to their posts, both parties agreed to continue working together and further intensify combined efforts in uplifting TVET and skills development strategies and programs in the Philippines and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region.
