Malaysia Deepens Ties with German Industries in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)


Recently, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Malaysia’s deputy prime minister, revealed a strategic new addition to the country’s National Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Council. Our sources confirmed that the inclusion of a representative from the German industry was announced at an important meeting held at the German-Malaysian Institute (GMI). This move is seen as an effort to facilitate technology exchange and knowledge sharing for the benefit of local students.

Details of the Proposed Collaboration

Ahmad Zahid, who also heads the TVET Council committee, elaborated on his future plans to extend such invitations to industrial representatives from other countries boasting of TVET institutes in Malaysia. The objective is to engage the CEO of a German company as part of the TVET Council, thereby encouraging further discussions and potential collaborations with German industrial players at the behest of the German ambassador to Malaysia.

Anticipated Benefits

Furthermore, Zahid stressed the likely advantage for German companies operating on Malaysian soil as part of this arrangement. According to him, these firms will be able to strike agreements to recruit TVET graduates at remuneration levels considered to be “premium” in the industry.

The Existing Success Model

Zahid further drew attention towards the current successful model, which provided inspiration for the said initiative. He provided data that showed a considerable number of agreements, precisely 238, had already been signed with members of the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers and the higher education ministry. Additionally, more than 10,200 companies had shown their commitment to engage in TVET education and employ its graduates.


This new initiative clearly demonstrates the Malaysian government’s focus on preparing its students to meet the challenges of the global industrial landscape and its commitment to enhance bilateral ties and open more doors for opportunities through TVET education.
