Orissa International successfully organized a tech-voc education-focused trade mission in October, with the first leg in Manila and the second in Cebu. The mission encompassed a comprehensive seminar and networking event featuring presentations from key institutions, including the German Embassy Manila, the German Chamber in the Philippines, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry and various authorities in the TVET sector, as well as productive B2B sessions, which saw the participation of over 20 local companies. The event brought together a diverse group of local companies, including recruitment agencies, educational institutions, training material distributors, and government agencies. The participants also engaged in site visits to various tech-voc institutions in Manila and Cebu. This mission played a key role in promoting collaboration and knowledge exchange within the tech-voc education sector, fostering meaningful connections between Philippine and international stakeholders.
