    • Abstract:
      Taiwan and more than 20 other countries/political entities in the Indo-Pacific Region are located between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. Regardless of economic development or strategic geography, they all play a pivotal role in the global deployment. How they develop talents by means of technical and vocational education (TVE) has drawn Taiwan's attention. Aiming to achieve the following three goals, this book is compiled and published: (1) to strengthen the mutual understanding and connection of TVE between Taiwan and the other countries in the Indo-Pacific region, (2) to expand more cross-country educational cooperation and flow of talent, and (3) to take advantage of the core competencies and achievements of TVE in neighboring countries as a Taiwan innovation reference for change. Two editors-in-chief formulated manuscript guidelines including cross-country comparison components, invited technical and vocational educators from 10 countries in the Indo-Pacific Region to follow the guidelines to write up country-specific chapters, conducted a peer review of all manuscripts and requested authors to make necessary revisions, and made a cross-country comparison which is presented as the 11th chapter. This book compiles country-specific articles about TVE profiles, the status of TVE, and trends and issues in TVE from 10 countries, namely Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, the United States, and Viet Nam. Book chapter authors are listed in this book.
