Greetings from EISD in Bangkok. We have good news to share - below, please find a brief update, including the announcement of the Sydney Statement on comparability and recognition of qualifications in Asia-Pacific.
More than 30 delegates met last week in Sydney, Australia for the 14th Session of the Regional Committee and Asia-Pacific Regional Workshop on Education 2030. This was an important opportunity to link ratification and implementation of the 2011 Tokyo Convention to SDG4 and promote fair and transparent recognition of higher education qualifications throughout the region. We received 36 Country Reports, many of which include detailed national work plans on ratification efforts. We look forward to being in touch with Member States as these plans and national consultations take shape. In the meantime, we appreciate your support and look forward to any questions about the Sydney meeting.
