Winners of the competition will attend a three-month specialized training in South Korea before representing Mongolia at the WorldSkills Sao Paulo 2015, one of the biggest vocational education events in the world, with over 1,000 competitors from 60 countries.
WorldSkills membership is required to take part in the event and the admission fee is 27,000 USD. The government of Mongolia agreed to pay the fee.
The Ministry of Labor and Mongolian Builders’ Association are jointly organizing the Mongol Skill vocational event for the second time.
