ASEANTA inks MOUs for tourism training and education

The ASEAN Tourism Association (ASEANTA) has entered into Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with the William Angliss Institute of Australia, a specialist training provider for the tourism, hospitality, events and food industries, and RuangGuru, an education-focused tech provider. These signings took place during the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2024 in Vientiane, Laos, in conjunction with the ASEAN Tourism Awards ceremony on 26 January 2024.
Eddy Krismeidi Soemawilaga, President of ASEANTA said:  "The signing of these MOUs signifies a crucial step in our commitment to supporting ASEAN initiatives, specifically in the implementation of the Mutual Recognition Arrangement on Tourism Professionals signed on 9 November 2012 in Bangkok." 
Commenting on the collaboration, Gautama Adi Kusuma, head of public policy at Ruangguru, added, "Our commitment to providing accessible online resources will contribute to the success of the MRA on Tourism Professionals, opening up new opportunities for individuals seeking to enhance their skills and contribute to the vibrant tourism industry in ASEAN."

These collaborations showcase ASEANTA's dedication to supporting the growth of the ASEAN tourism sector by ensuring a high-quality workforce. ASEANTA also extends its gratitude to the ASEAN Member States, particularly Laos' Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, for their support in enabling this signing ceremony.
