ASEAN Leaders committed, in 2010, to “develop national skills frameworks in AMS through sharing of experiences and best practices as a strategy to strengthen human resource development and management and to enable member States to raise their
respective levels of skills standards, as an incremental approach towards an ASEAN skills recognition framework” (ASEAN 2010). In support of this commitment, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), in its Second High Officials Meeting (HOM) on Southeast Asia-Technical Vocational Education and Training (SEA-TVET) in 2016, agreed that a regional and national qualification reference framework and assurance framework are necessary to harmonize and internationalize TVET in Southeast Asia. As follow-through to this agreement, the Third HOM on SEA-TVET directed SEARCA to assist on the matter, leading to the conduct of the Regional Workshop on Competency Certification for Agricultural Workers in Southeast Asia.
