The Programme was officially launched in 2009 during the COMCEC Economic Summit. Capacity Building Programmes (CBPs) constitute a major component of the OIC-VET program. The program has been initiated for improving the quality of vocational education and training in Member Countries, with the aim of providing opportunities to individuals to develop their knowledge and skills; thus to contribute to the development and competitiveness of the economies of the Member Countries. Capacity building programmes have been initiated in nine different areas, namely statistics, agriculture and environment, economy, finance and trade, employment, health, information, communication and transportation, labour and social security, social policy and tourism with many sub-themes within the framework of OIC-VET.
