The inaugural Pacific Skills Summit will begin tomorrow at the University of the South Pacific in Suva.
The Summit which will be held over two days will look at ways to address the skills challenges faced by the region.
President of Nauru and Pacific Islands Forum Chair Baron Waqa is one of the key architects of the initiative.
“My vision for the Pacific Skills Partnership was to inspire and stimulate the creation of new, innovative and practical approaches that will strengthen the Pacific Skills Pool. We all aspire to a region that is inclusive, productive and sustainable.”
In partnership with the University of the South Pacific and the Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC), the summit will draw on the expertise of those from government, educational institutions, civil society and the private sector to forge the best way forward.
More than 300 delegates are expected to attend the summit which will conclude on Thursday.
