China pays trib­ute to host World Skills Com­pe­ti­tion

Fiji Sun - - World News -


China’s bid to host the 2021 WorldSkills Com­pe­ti­tion show­cases the na­tion’s re­spect for skilled work­ers and its em­pha­sis on crafts­man­ship. The city of Shang­hai is in the run­ning to host the 46th World Skills Com­pe­ti­tion in 2021, the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and So­cial Se­cu­rity said in a state­ment ear­lier this week. China has a sound foun­da­tion for the bid given that the coun­try or­gan­ises var­i­ous vo­ca­tional skill com­pe­ti­tions ev­ery year and pays high at­ten­tion to vo­ca­tional train­ing and the team build­ing of skilled tal­ent, the state­ment said. China is among three con­tenders bid­ding for the right to hold the com­pe­ti­tion, along with Switzer­land and South Africa.
