This year, the Forum will discuss policy enablers and responses to human capital challenges in the region. The Forum will emphasise the transformative impact of digitalisation on education and skills, as well as how to reshape the current education and skills strategies to enhance resilience and competitiveness of Southeast Asia’s human resources in a fast-changing world of work. H.E. Mr. Don Pramudwinai, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand, will deliver opening remarks in the Forum, along with H.E. Mr. Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the OECD, and H.E. Mr. Choi Joong-Moon, 2nd Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea.
