TESDA EXEC VICE CHAIRMAN FOR 13TH WORLDSKILLS ASEAN COMPETITION
TECHNICAL Educarion and Skills Development Authority Deputy Director General Aniceto ‘John’ Bertiz III was nominated as the vice chairperson for the 13th WorldSkills Asean Competition in 2023.
Delegates from the 10 Association of the Southeast Asian Nations nominated Bertiz during the competition’s first organizing committee meeting. Singapore’s head of delegation Bruce Poh, meanwhile, was named chairperson.
Bertiz said that his election as the vice chairperson will give the Philippines valuable insights into managing the international skills competition as the country itself prepares to host the 14th WorldSkills Asean in 2025.
“Our hosting, as well as participation in these international competitions, will also help improve Tesda’s readiness in facing the changes being brought about by the 4th Industrial Revolution and enhance the country’s global competitiveness,” he said.
“The competition is an excellent opportunity to inspire talented Asean youths, to encourage them to take ownership of their learning and develop their passion into skills mastery,” Bertiz added.
The 13th WorldSkills competition will be held from July 23-25, 2023 in Singapore.
