A group of industry delegates from Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos visited several leading transport companies as part of a tour hosted by the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) recently.
The delegates were on a mission to report on Australia’s approach to vocational education and training (VET).
As part of their visit to Melbourne they met with executives at Regional Express, the Ansett Aviation Training Centre, Pel Air and Linfox.
The delegation was welcomed by TLISC Chairman, Laurie D’Apice, who is President Human Resources and Industrial Relations at Linfox.
Linfox has operations in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
TLISC CEO Robert Adams said he believed there were significant opportunities for cooperation on training and workforce development between Australia and key markets in South East Asia.
Mr Adams said our organisation has a sophisticated approach to skills development in transport and logistics including road transport, warehousing, rail, aviation, maritime, logistics and ports. “The visit reinforced the Skills Council’s role is at the forefront of skills development internationally,” he said.
