21 Oct 2020
At the Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific 2020 event, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) announced the addition of 500 training opportunities in leading Industry 4.0 tech firms to the SGUnited Jobs and Skills for Advanced Manufacturing programme. SSG also announced a collaboration between SP and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to form the Global Technology Innovation Village (GTiV), a platform to share Singapore's Industry 4.0 knowledge and technology with regional government and business leaders. An Industry 4.0 consortium will be set up under the GTiV, comprising 19 technology leaders, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), standards organisations, SSG and JTC. ADB members will be able to tap expertise in applied research and development, startups and innovations through this consortium, and in turn provide access to growth opportunities for the consortium partners through the network of regional leaders. For instance, SSG's training and adult educators will be mobilised to help ADB member countries raise their workforce capabilities, creating internationalisation opportunities for the Training and Adult Education sector and job opportunities for Singapore's adult educators. To start, GTiV will roll out six workshops in the domain areas of advanced manufacturing, 5G, artificial intelligence and food technologies in the first half of 2021. The workshops will use training curricula co-developed by SP and the consortium partners. More than 100 government and business leaders across Asia are expected to participate in these workshops.
