The project “Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a Regional Secretariat for ASEAN Tourism Professionals” has been undertaken to support a common qualification structure that in turn will facilitate the free movement of labour and enhanced connectivity between all ASEAN Member States (AMS) being the Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) on Tourism Professionals.
The core objective of this project have been to assess the need on behalf of the ASEAN Tourism Professionals Monitoring Committee (ATPMC) for the Establishment of a Regional Secretariat for ASEAN Tourism Professionals and whether it is the best option to respond to the MRA requirements.
If not the best option, what are other alternatives and if the best option, identify how the Regional Secretariat should operate, its processes and mechanisms, and how to position itself to best support the work of the ATPMC and related institutions and ultimately be financially self-sustainable.
This Report outlines the recommendations, milestones, budgets and timelines from the Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a Regional Secretariat for ASEAN Tourism Professionals. To access the report, please contact the Infrastructure Division of the ASEAN Secretariat.
