Project Summary

To contribute to enhancing “people-to-people connectivity”, “fostering human capital development” and “promoting trade and investment liberalization and facilitation”, this project aims to conduct case studies on mutual recognition of skills and job qualifications in selected areas and will also cover other regional cooperation including capacity building in relevant fields.

The project includes:

1) Identifying cases that satisfy the project objectives,

2) Interviewing agencies and parties related to each of the cases,

3) Compiling the case studies to share good practices and industrial needs, and

4) Having a workshop/session in the margins of 2017 HRDWG and discussing implications/recommendations to provide greater insights into further activities in HRDWG and related fora.

The final report will be published by December 2017.

Relevance

Many preceding studies have pointed out that more open and region-wide skill mobility is necessary to address the shortage of skilled labours, which are caused by demographic changes exemplified as an aging-society, in the Asia-Pacific region. The ABAC also reported in the paper entitled “The “Earn, Learn, Return” Model”, which was presented at SOM2 in 2015, pointed out the mismatch of labour supply and demand is also reflecting to the labour shortage in the region. To address these challenges, APEC has established mutual recognition frameworks such as “APEC Engineer project” and “APEC Architect project” and a number of bilateral Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) were already made for the respective professions between some economies. APEC also recognizes the important role of MRAs in the APEC Connectivity Blueprint for 2015-2025 that is endorsed at AELM 2014. It also reaffirms the importance to facilitate the mobility of service suppliers and business persons in the APEC Services Cooperation Framework (ASCF) endorsed at AELM 2015.

Building on these precedent achievements in APEC, this project aims to conduct case studies for skills or job qualifications recognition and also include related regional cooperation that contribute to enhance skills and job qualifications in the region. The outputs of the project are expected to deepen the understanding of the current status of the mutual recognition of skills and job qualifications among APEC member economies. The best practices will be compiled that identified in the research. The study also include related public and private cooperation that enhancing the capacity building for skills and job qualifications and it may potentially converted and adapted as an industries’ standards or even may contribute to future expansion or creation of recognition regimes among APEC economies.

This project directly links to "human capital development" (Rank1), "people-to-people connectivity" (Rank1) and “Services trade” (Rank 1)”. It also contributes to “inclusive growth: Issues related to reducing economic disparities among APEC" (Rank2) in terms of enhancing local labor quality through mutual recognition and related cooperation of job qualifications. It also closely linked to APEC priorities and key APEC themes stated in the 2015 Leaders’ Declaration and the 6th HRDMM.

Objectives

The key objectives of this project are as follows:

1) To better understand the achievements and challenges of existing mutual recognition arrangements of “skills and job qualifications”, as well as the related cooperation of job qualifications in both the public and private sectors among member economies.

2) to raise awareness of their possible functions such as enhancing skilled labor mobility, cultivating labor quality and improving the local business environment, through conducting and sharing case studies such as APEC Engineer, APEC Architect, Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) in the ASEAN, IT engineers examination and other related cooperation.

3) to develop implications/recommendations for further enhancing skills and job qualification recognitions and related regional cooperation activities in the area of skills and job qualifications, and provide new insights with HRDWG and other related fora through discussing/sharing the studies’ outputs.

Alignment

Human capital development is one of the priority areas in APEC 2016. As a priority area, it is expected to promote skill and knowledge development, job qualification and its mutual recognition in the Asia Pacific region with a view to enhancing productivity towards the future.

In the APEC Connectivity Blueprint for 2015-2025 endorsed in 2014, APEC leaders “commit [ted] to strengthen people-to-people connectivity through human capital development”. It’s also noted that “APEC can undertake work to help expand the number of bilateral and multilateral MRAs in the region” and “Mutual recognition of skills and credentials can play an important role in facilitating skilled labor mobility”. Leaders also “affirm[ed] the importance of facilitating the mobility of service suppliers and business persons" in the APEC Services Cooperation Framework (ASCF) endorsed in 2015. These similar priorities were repeatedly highlighted in 2015 AMM Joint Ministerial Statement and APEC Economic Leaders Declaration in 2015.

Under these prevailing policies, this project could provide greater insights into various discussions in APEC such as “enhancing labor mobility”, “ensuring quality of labor skills” and “promoting trade and investment liberalization and facilitation” through elaborating the up-to-date status of the mutual recognition and related cooperation in the area of job qualifications.

"Promoting quality employment and strengthening people-to-people connectivity" were highlighted in the Joint Ministerial Statement of HRDMM 2014. In line with the statement, three priority areas were identified in HRDMM Action Plan 2015-2018. The project contributes to the following priority area: Enhancing human resource quality to meet supply chain demands, and this is aligned with HRDWG and CBN objectives, which specify “develop[ing] common understandings about qualifications, skills, and professional recognition”, in TOR of HRDWG. Those elements of the action plan and TOR have been incorporated into Strategic Plan 2014-2016 and annual work plan.

TILF/ASF Justification

Enhancing mutual recognition of skills and qualifications among the APEC economies would contribute to facilitate the mobility of skilled workforce, including business people engaged in the conduct of trade and investment in the region (OAA Part I, Section C, 13. Mobility of Business People).

The primary studies in the project is to explore best practices and compile in case studies of any existing mutual recognitions arrangement of skills and qualification in the region (OAA Part I, Section C, 5. Mutual Recognition of Conformity Assessment, and 14. Information Gathering & Analysis).

While the study will primarily focus on technical and engineering fields, it will also explore for the possible outreach in the fields of manufacturing related services. As the region’s economy is more and more driven by the growing tertiary industries and the international service trade is now highlighted in the region, any output of the studies may contribute to the implementation of “Manufacturing Related Services Action Plan” which is discussed in the Committee for Trade and Investment (CTI). With this study’s approach, it will reassure that the output of the project will contribute to the region’s trade and investment liberalization and facilitation. (OAA Part I, Section C, 3. Services).

The project will also include case studies of related international cooperation, in the form of investment or development assistances, which complement to human capital development in the region, and it would potentially substitutes the required skills or qualifications that needed in such trade and investment environments (OAA Part I, Section C, 4. Investment, C) and (OAA Part II, Section B, 4. Human Resources Development).

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: Following products or services will be created as the milestone deliverables of the project:

1)  Initial Research and Analysis Report: By the end of preparatory study phase, Initial Research and Analysis Report will be submitted to PO. The report will be considered as a milestone deliverable and important resources to explain the logical research passage toward the next phase of the studies.

2)  Interim Report:  The findings and analysis obtained at the end field studies (April 2017), an interim report will be summarized and shared as a basis of discussion for the scheduled workshop on May 2017.

3) Workshop:  A workshop will be organized in midterm of the Project (scheduled in May 2017). The speakers from each participating economy could be chosen from the selected candidate case studies and encouraged to submit an example of a designated skills recognition mechanism respectively. The workshop is aimed to share the output as an interim report and to accumulate any suggestion or recommendations from the member economies by reviewing the report, collecting supplemental information and obtaining some adjustments for the better directions towards the finalizing the studies.

4) Final Report:  A final report will be published which combine “case studies of best practices” of mutual recognition of skills and qualification that already initiated and working in place within the APEC economies. 

The final report could provide greater insights into various discussions in APEC, so that it will primarily benefit for the APEC participant, including policy makers who works in the related fora by better understanding the achievements and challenges of existing mutual recognition arrangements of “skills and job qualifications” among member economies. It also could be of useful reference to the relevant industries, other accrediting authorities among the economies. The report will also compile case studies of good examples of human capital development in international cooperation initiatives, both in public and private sectors that will contribute to establish new standards of skills in the destination economies and also benefitted for the workforces. 

Outcomes: The project aims to elaborate the current status of the mutual recognition of skills and qualification in APEC region that contribute to the APEC priority areas such as enhancing “people-to-people connectivity”, “fostering human capital development” and “promoting trade and investment liberalization and facilitation” among others.

While these priority areas has been echoed quite often in the past APEC fora, general public, including policy makers might not well aware of the specific practices or the recent status of those efforts that have been made for the respective priorities.

The outcomes of the project will help us better understand the achievements from the best practices in mutual recognition arrangements in the region. The levels of mutual recognition will not be limited to the formal governmental agreement but also include at the level of respective licensing bodies among the economies as many challenges to mobility from the perspective of skills and qualifications recognition presumably rest in industrial or labour practices.

One can argue and which might be true that mutual recognition agreement on a certain licensing regime may have limited applicability to another sector, while the prospects of this case studies is more focused on any decisive aspects what can led the sectoral recognition successful and got the breakthrough following tries and errors. The case studies will put more emphasis on the managerial aspects which can be learned from one another, regardless of the sector.

From this prospect, it can be expected that we could better facilitate and grasp the overall background of up-coming discussion of the theme with more clear ideas. Hence that would lead the discussion in more productive and efficient manner.

As for the best practices to be extracted from the study of manufacturing related services, the outcome is also expected to contribute to the Manufacturing Related Services Action Plan of CTI. Therefore, such output would eventually contribute to the region’s trade and investment liberalization and facilitation.

In view of human capital development, best practices include not only from those existing mutual recognition cases, but also from other international cooperation activities that have been taken place in the form of either investment or development assistances among the APEC economies. That will help us to identify the skills or qualifications which might be possibly recognized as a potential area to officially facilitate and gradually expanded as region-wide recognizable skill or qualification standards. 

The expected impacts of the outputs are:

1) To raise awareness of their possible functions such as enhancing skilled labor mobility, cultivating labor quality and improving the local business environment, through conducting and sharing case studies and other international cooperation activities among the APEC region;

2) To share the followings to HRDWG and other related fora through discussing/reviewing the studies’ outputs;

(a) Implications/recommendations for further possible progress of mutual recognition in the region

(b) Implication of effective use of related international cooperation that may contribute to upgrade or develop skills and job qualifications

(c) Key essences and insights obtained from the studies for enhancing practices of mutual recognitions 

Beneficiaries: As this project is a research intensive type of project, thus the appointed researchers will shoulder the great part of the entire study as the successful bidding contractor of the project, but not as the participants of the Project. 

Meanwhile, fairly wide range of people will be involved, especially in the phase of field study, by interviewing or perhaps by contributing their experienced cases and data to the project. They can be the resource persons to identify of best practices in any skills or qualification accrediting authorities or regulating government officials in some economies. The participants to the scheduled workshop also considered as the part of direct project participants. There will be no specific qualifications or level of expertise required as long as they have a certain expertise in their own responsible fields. There will be no gender segregation thus encouraged to have more women participations. 

The users of the outputs are the primarily the member of the HRD working group and other related fora who are working on the related issues in respective forums. APEC senior officials of all economies are also benefited in some extent since the objectives of the project is defined as “to better understand the achievements and challenges of existing mutual recognition arrangements of “skills and job qualifications”, as well as the related cooperation of job qualifications in both the public and private sectors among member economies.” 

The immediate beneficiaries of this project can include not only the member of HRDWG and related fora but also the industries related to the case studies in terms of raising awareness of APEC economies. In the long term, those skilled workers and their receiving economies will also be considered as the beneficiaries. The members of HRDWG are welcome to directly be engaged and contribute to the further development by adding further inputs.

Dissemination

The proposed project will communicate the results and outputs to relevant stakeholders via circulation of approximately 200 copies of project report handbooks. They will be distributed within HRDWG members as well as other related fora such as the Committee on Trade and Investment (CTI) and other working groups. An electronic publication of the project report will also be made available on the APEC publication database as well as the APEC HRD Wiki in a downloadable digital format. Availability of materials will be announced to relevant government agencies and skills and qualification accrediting authorities, including those who has contributed in the study phase of this project. Those accrediting authorities will be able to utilize the key essence that summarized in the reports to enhance their own responsible recognition systems in any customized way. Each APEC economy is encouraged to translate the outputs and could be of any hint to help identify any specific skills or qualifications which can be transformed into mutually recognizable one with other member economies.

Gender

The project overseer as a woman and also a member of PPWE will pay a full attention to ensure the gender balance throughout the entire phases of the project.

The participating speakers to the workshop will be asked to deliver an assigned report which will examine if any gender segregated customs are observed in the each respective economies, especially in the area of skills and job qualification field. If any imbalance of male-to-female ratio or even anachronous gender segregations are dominating in the economy, then such topic will be discussed among the participants and the outline of the discussion will be compiled in the report. Participation of women to the Workshop will be highly encouraged and the workshop organizer will seek to have more than a quarter percent up to 50% of the female participant. Gender impacts will also be measured by sharing the feedbacks from female participants during the session review in the Workshop.

Work Plan

The project will be commenced by appointing qualified research contractors who will be chosen through the open tendering procedure. The initial part of the activities comprise literature research, preparatory studies to select some potential best practices, followed by full-scale field studies, data analysis, and writing of an interim report which includes developing case studies of the identified best practices. The interim report will be used as a basis for the discussion in the scheduled workshop in May 2017. The output identified by then will be further consolidated with the suggestions or additional inputs contributed by the participants to the workshop and finally compiled in a final report. The report will be circulated to the member of HRDWG, CTI and other fora whomever show their interests on that topic. It is also expected to seek an opportunity to introduce the summary of the study in the upcoming Ministerial Meeting (AMM) and Economic Leaders' Meeting (AELM) which will be scheduled in Nov 2017.

The timeline is scheduled as follows: 

1)  Undertaking an Open Tendering Process (Nov-Dec 2016): The Project Organizer, under the supervision of PO, will prepare a Request for Proposal (RFP) and timeline to seek an approval from the APEC Secretariat. The submitted RFP will be circulated among all member economies and posted on APEC website. PO and assisting project organizer will prepare CVs and proposal from the recommending Contractor(s) which outline the relevant skills and experience for the required tasks and a report that details selection process of the Contractor(s) will be submitted to obtain an approval from PD at APEC Secretariat.

The PO will sign with successful bidders upon obtaining the green light from the set up evaluation panel that will formally evaluate the submitted proposal with representatives from co-sponsoring economies. 

2)  Preparatory literature studies and selection of target area (Dec 2016 – Jan 2017): Following the consultation with PO and the project organizer, the Contractor will proceed to the literature research, including many precedent studies that carried out in the past APEC projects, in the area of;

a)  Skilled labor mobility, job qualification standards and selected mutual recognition mechanism in APEC regions with priorities in manufacturing, civil engineering, automotive, ICT and service industries.

b)  International cooperation, in the form of investment or development assistances, which complement to human capital development in the region, and that would potentially substitutes the required skills and qualifications that needed in such trade and investment environments.

The Contractor shall present a “research and analysis report” to PO prior to the end of this phase. The report shall include recommendations of potential area for the case studies to be elaborated in the following field studies. The report will be considered as a milestone deliverable and an important resource to explain the logical research passage toward the next phase of the studies. Meantime, PO shall prepare for the submission of the periodical Project Monitoring Report to the APEC Secretariat by the end of January. 

3)  Full-scale field research (Feb – Apr 2017): Based on the identified information that gained from the preparatory study phase and the given directions from the PO, the researchers conduct intensive field studies which may include traveling to the survey’s destination economy and interviewing the key persons of any accrediting authorities or regulating government officials in respective area. APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) is also included in the list of the scheduled destinations to have broader insights in this field of studies. In addition to the ABAC, ILO (in Bangkok) and UNESCO (Regional Bureau for Education in Asia and the Pacific) will also be included as recommended by co-sponsoring Australia. The output of the field research together with previous report will be compiled into an interim report as the second milestone deliverable. The interim report will be compiled in close consultation with PO and necessary instruction will be given to the Contractors. 

4)  Interim report presented in Workshop (May 2017): A workshop will be organized in one of the member economies (tentatively proposed at Viet Nam, possibly in the margin of HRDWG/SOM2, to be confirmed) as the third milestone deliverable. Agenda for the workshop will be prepared beforehand and the interim report of the conducted studied will be shared to make it as a basis of the workshop, thus specialists and policymakers who are engaging with the related issues in respective economies are highly welcomed to participate and share valuable thoughts. 

5)  Consolidating the Workshop Outputs and Carrying out Supplemental Studies (Jun – Sep2017): After closing the workshop, the program contents will be reviewed and the new insights obtained from the workshop will be consolidated into the final report. Supplementary studies may be carried out during this phase if the PO finds any necessity in view of achieving the objectives or in response to obtained input from the workshop. The PO will prepare for the submission of the periodical Project Monitoring Report to the APEC Secretariat by the end of July. 

6)  Finalization of the report and dissemination of the Summary at high level meetings (Oct - Nov 2017): The final report will be compiled by November 2017 and the executive summary will be delivered and shared at the upcoming AMM and/or AELM as they are scheduled to be held in Nov 2017. 

7)  Publishing final report  (Nov-Dec 2017): The final report will be published in both printed and electronic formats. The report could be useful reference for the relevant industries, accrediting authorities or policy makers of the APEC economies when it comes to reviewing the existing and future skills & job recognition arrangements within the region.

Risks

In general, there is a potential risk that the implementation of the project may be delayed due to the potential difficulties on adjusting schedules for the interview appointment with the selected destination bodies. In order to keep the project timeline, the PO and project organizer will closely monitor project progress, while commitment of the contractors to follow the schedule will be requested and secured.

The timing of the workshop proposed in May 2017 may need to respond and adjust depending on the participants’ availability. The progress of the studies which will be compiled in interim report and used as a basis of the discussion at the workshop will also impact for fixing the schedule. This risk could be managed through the early advertising of the details for the event. The dates of the workshop will be chosen in close coordination with a cooperating economy of the venue.

Successful hearing a capable contractor can be the other factor. The appointing researchers/consultants for the full-scale study should be well-acquainted with issues associated with the mutual recognition of “skills and job qualifications”, human capacity development and labor market issues in APEC. They will be required to have close contact with PO and project organizer and avail of relevant support and directions whenever necessary. Based on this understanding, the required TOR for the contractor will be scrutinized and indicated in the RFP to assure the effective implementation of the project.

In order to meet the project objectives, the initial comprehensive literature survey and wide range of field studies are required to identify the best practices available in the region. It should be done by the appointed capable researchers to work out across the economies. They will be required to conduct on-site interviews (field studies) in the selected economies, followed by email communication or VoIP meeting, the vice-Vasa. Since the budget for the project has limitations, certain expenses such as interpretation or the document translation should be minimized in the cost effective manner. Hence it is required for the contracting researchers should be capable to work in multilingual environments without helps of interpreters to smoothly conduct the series of studies and its coordination with the local authorities across the multiple economies, including Japan.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Participants of the workshop are expected to have more than 25 persons including speakers ,experts and more than 5 economies including the project proposing economy.

Interim review by the workshop participant will be conducted. The participants will be asked to provide feedbacks in questionnaire to score the effectiveness of program materials, including the interim report, which will be shared as a basis for the discussion at the workshop. The feedback will be analized  with the given quantifiable scoring. Obtaining 4 points out of 5 is targeted as a satisfactory level. 

Prior to the completion of the project, online feedback survey will be conducted. The feedback score will be collected in 5 grades and obtaining 4 points out of 5 will be targeted to presume as satisfactory. The post project completion, medium and long term impact will be examined by observing the number of citations of the studies among APEC economies. The number of the report download from the APEC website is expected to be more than 1000 in the first year.

Linkages

The project will have close communication with the related agencies or organizations including Trades Recognition Australia (TRA), Workforce Development Agency of Chinese Taipei and other recognized institutions which administer the qualification systems in the process of field studies. The project will also seek possible linkages and build on with the other related HRDWG projects which were implemented in the relevant area, such as “Strengthening Mobility and Promoting Regional Integration of Professional Engineers in APEC Economies (HRD 03 2014T)” or “Integrated Referencing Framework for Skills Recognition and Mobility (HRD 05 2015S)” to make full use of the series of effort of the working group.

In order to make sure that there will be no duplication with those preceding projects, this studies is more focused on elaborating best practice cases that can grasp the current status of the existing skills and credentials recognition arrangement. In view of engagement with other relevant groups, it is expected that the results of the whole study could contribute to the implementation of “Manufacturing Related Services Action Plan” lead by CTI, in which lack of mutual recognition is pointed out as one of the challenges for liberalization and facilitation of manufacturing related services.

This project could provide greater insights into the various priority issues of APEC such as “enhancing labor mobility”, “ensuring quality of labor skills” and “promoting trade and investment liberalization and facilitation”, thus the APEC’s comparative advantages are assured and the TILF fund is the most appropriate sources of funds.

Sustainability

The primary objective of this project is to better understand and illustrate the achievements of the current mutual recognition arrangements on skills and job qualification and to raise awareness among the beneficiaries in the APEC economies. The envisaged beneficiaries include members of HRD and other interested working groups, fora, others senior officials, policymakers, and more importantly accreditation authorities among other.

The beneficiaries will be supported when he/she require further detailed information from the introduced cases in the report, the project organizer will be able to assist to contact, if it’s necessary, the information sources so that the best practices and their vanguard experiences will be fully shared and utilized.

The initial decimation will be done through the circulation of the project output in printed and digital format. In order to reach out to the unknown interested group of people, the use of the social media associated with the APEC publication database and HRDWG Wiki will be arranged. The project findings will also be presented in the following HRDWG in 2018.

Following the completion of the project, the next ideal steps to make full use of the outputs is to plan any supplemental projects which focus on particular sectors that selected based on the findings of the study and obtained feedbacks from the working group. Another option is to focus on any identified particular skills or job qualifications which already have mutual recognition arrangements within the economies, but due to some reasons, the scheme may not be fully utilized in the sector. Through studying the cause, the finding could provide some applicable hints to enhance the initiatives of the mutual recognitions.

The progress on the outcomes and impacts of the Project can be measured by looking at the number of citations of the Project in the following years and the overall degree of attention on the mutual recognition issues as well as skill related capacity building issues, in comparison of before and after the project completion.

Project Overseers

Ms. Harumi Murakami, Assistant Director, APEC Office, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will serve as a Project Overseer to monitor progress and ensure success of the project. Ms. Murakami currently covers a portfolio of APEC related to HRDWG and PPWE, as well as is a representative of Japan at HRDWG CBN.  Since the project requires a great deal of coordination and communication among relevant stakeholders, her expertise will ensure the effectiveness of the project. 

Mr. Shuichi Harima, who is also a member of APEC HRDWG CBN, and HRD Deputy Director of Institute for International Studies and Training (IIST) will lead the implementation and management of the project under the supervision of the PO. With his extensive experiences engaged as a project coordinator in international cooperation projects in many economies, Mr. Harima will act as project organizer and contribute for smooth implementation of this project.
