2. Myanmar assumed leadership of ASED and adopted the theme Fostering Lifelong Learning of the ASEAN Community: Improving Skills through Quality Education and Training. The chosen theme aims to inculcate learning as a lifelong process that will equip the peoples of ASEAN with the means to be adaptive, versatile and responsive to the continuously evolving needs of society. The theme reaffirms the value of education including the potential gains to be achieved through quality technical and vocational education and training (TVET). In this regard, we exchanged views about our experiences in designing and implementing education
reforms particularly in response to the rise of the digital economy and the emergence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
