BANGI: Malaysia has extended an invitation for a representative from Germany to sit on the Malaysia Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) Council.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said this is the first foreign appointment in the council and Malaysia will extend more invitations soon.

"Industry players from Germany have offered to contribute in terms of knowledge, experience and technology to the TVET institutions in Malaysia.

"So, when I was in Berlin, I had extended the invitation to the German Chamber of Commerce in Malaysia to send a representative to sit on the Malaysia TVET Council.

"The German ambassador will discuss with them and one of the chief executive officers from the German companies will sit on the council," he told reporters after launching the Industry Advisory Council summit at the German-Malaysian Institute today (March 5).

Zahid had led a delegation to Berlin, Germany in Oct 2023 to glean insights and wisdom from Germany's experiences and to learn from the best practices that have elevated the German vocational programme to an international benchmark.

Zahid, who is also the Rural and Regional Development minister, said he would be extending invitations to industry players from other countries to sit on the council.

"I will also invite other industry players from several countries that have TVET institutions in our country to participate in the council to foster greater inclusivity.

"This way, they can not only share new knowledge and technologies with us but at the same time, their companies in Malaysia can sign a memorandum of understandings to hire TVET graduates with premium salaries, which is indeed a new approach," he said.
