During the two-day event, delegates will focus on sharing information, discussing future exchange programmes for students of SEAMEO member countries, assessing the implementation of the Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET) Student Exchange Programme, whilst also talking about the action plan for the SEA-TVET network for the 2020-2023 period.

Since 2013, the SEAMEO conference has been held biennially, with the conference’s host being rotated among member states.

SEAMEO members are Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam.
