Bhutan and Singapore have signed a MoU under which the latter will provide “high-quality practice orienting skilling training” in the field of automobile technology.

In a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, Sonam Tobgay, Director, Department of Bilateral Affairs in Bhutanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Simon Wong, Singapore ambassador to India, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the Establishment of Model Technical Training Centres (MTTC) in the Technical Training Institute of Thimphu and Technical Training Institute of Khuruthang.

The ITE-Education Services of Singapore will provide technical assistance to Bhutan’s Ministry of Labour and Human Resources in developing Modal Technical Training Centers.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Bhutan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “The Government of the Republic of Singapore through ITE-Education Services of Singapore will provide high-quality practice-oriented skills training for Bhutanese youth in Automotive Technology at Technical Training Institute-Thimphu and Facility Technology-Mechanical & Electrical at Technical Training Institute-Khuruthang, Punakha.”

Since 2017, after the first visit of the Singaporean foreign minister to Bhutan, the country has been assisting Bhutan to strengthen its technical and vocational education and training for youth.
