census myanmarAuthorities in Myanmar are looking to the Singapore education model for technical and engineering staff as the country ramps up efforts to develop a skilled workforce, Channel News Asia reported.

A training center has been opened in Yangon for young men to learn the skills of welding and electrical work together with Singapore Polytechnic with a grant from Temasek Foundation.

However, training certificate standards have still to be set up by Myanmar, the report said. Setting national standards is part of the government’s extensive reform of its dated labour laws from the 1950s.

Deputy Labour Minister U Myint Thein said the country is gearing up for an influx of foreign investment, and also for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ target of having a free flow of skilled labour by 2015.
