Abstract

This chapter draws together main themes and issues in skills development that need to be addressed through policy and strategy—these relate to the problems of adequate employment, skills mismatch, ensuring adequate foundational skills, and industry participation in skills development, putting in place standards and tools for skills measurement and monitoring and the need for employment services to supplement skills development. The chapter outlines possible areas for support for strengthening key policies and practices in skills development that can potentially lead to a coherent framework for skills development in Asia and the Pacific region.
