The meeting will also be attended by more than 6 ministers of labour from various countries in the region. The presence of these personalities highlights the importance and global commitment to strengthening TVET as a vehicle for the sustainable development of our countries.

The 46th RCT will bring together more than 60 TVET institutions from across the region, governments, workers' and employers' representatives from 27 countries, which, under the theme "Vocational training as the backbone of economic and social development", will represent a unique opportunity to address the challenges posed by technological, demographic and environmental changes in the world of work and training. In this context, the meeting will provide a space for reflection and debate on vocational training and its effective contribution to generating the responses that the context requires.

During the three days of the event, keynote lectures will be held on the key aspects of the above-mentioned transitions. In addition, there will be discussions that will allow to know and deepen the experiences and lessons learned by the various countries and institutions on these critical issues.
