Reconnecting with UNEVOC in Myanmar


© PINZ
PINZ’ CEO, Brenda Lazelle, and Project Manager, Amy McAteer, recently travelled to Myanmar to build our understanding of the skills development sector and explore opportunities for working together. While there, they met with Dr Theingi, the UNEVOC focal point for Myanmar, and had a very fruitful discussion on the priorities for the development of TVET in the country. Dr Theingi is the Pro-Rector of West Yangon Technological University under the Ministry of Science and Technology.

Mrs Lazelle and Dr Theingi had previously met at the UNEVOC Regional Forum Asia and Pacific in Seoul in September. Brenda and Amy were also able to meet with Ms Khin Mar Aye, who had also attended the Seoul Forum. Ms Khin has leadership roles with the National Skills Standards Agency (NSSA) and the Yankin Skills Training Centre under the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security. We were happy to be able to visit her Centre and see TVET in action.

Ms Naing Yee Mar, formerly of the UNEVOC International Centre in Bonn, was also part of this meeting through the work she is doing with the NSSA under GIZ.

This was a great opportunity to reconnect and continue to build productive relationships with our UNEVOC colleagues for the benefit of TVET in Myanmar.
