PHILIPPINES: The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), along with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, has signed a memorandum of agreement with 16 logistics services industry associations to advance a competitive and future-ready logistics workforce through training and skills development.
Under the plan, the governmemnt agencies will give priority to workers in the logistics services sector for its training programs.
Complementing this effort is the adoption of the Philippine Skills Framework for Supply Chain and Logistics, an information portal with advice on career pathways, functional skills, and competencies for the sector.
The DTI noted that with the skills framework, employers can more easily evaluate their individual logistics manpower requirement. On the employee side, individuals can also make informed decisions about career choices and take responsibility for skills upgrading and career planning.
