The recent CPSC 2008 Manila Declaration, which is anchored on the 2002 UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the UNESCO-UNEVOC 2004 Bonn Declaration, strongly advocates public private partnerships which are pivotal to human-centered sustainable development and regional and global development.

Private Partnership Partnerships (PPPs) have a key role to play in the development of the Asia Pacific region. As a “culture of partnership” extends further throughout international organizations, governments and the private sector, innovative solutions are being developed all the time.

This Symposium has been considered as an effective venue for government officials, heads or representatives of private institutions and non-government organizations, policy makers, educators and senior administrators to identify and share different approaches and best practices in public private partnership for sustainable TVET in the Asia Pacific region.
