One-year countdown for WorldSkills 2022 begins

About 40 consular officers in Shanghai from 30 countries, including France and Denmark, were briefed on the preparations for the 46th WorldSkills Competition at an event signaling the one-year countdown to the world’s largest skills competition.

Shanghai will be host city for the event which is to be held on the Chinese mainland for the first time.

A briefing on the history and development of WorldSkills International, the WorldSkills Competition and China’s preparation to host the 46th edition was provided by Zhao Yongfeng, chief of the Shanghai Human Resources and Social Security Bureau and secretary-general of WorldSkills 2022 organizing committee at the Consulate Engagement Event.

Zhao told the consular officers that China joined WorldSkills International in October 2010 as a young member, and it now aimed at organizing a creative and influential WorldSkills Competition.

A leading group, an organizing committee and an executive bureau have been established for the event, he said.

The WorldSkills Museum, a joint initiative of WorldSkills International, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the Shanghai government, is being developed on the banks of the Huangpu River.

As the world’s first museum to show vocational skills, it will become a global center for the exhibition of skills, a world platform for cooperation and exchange of skills development, an international skills education and training center and an official documentation center.

Zhao said the museum will start its pilot run in July next year and officially open in October 2022 when the WorldSkills Competition takes place.

Many activities have been organized to promote the competition. The WorldSkills flag was brought to the summit of Mount Qomolangma on May 27 last year and the Antarctic on January 19 this year, demonstrating the spirit of pursuing extreme excellence in craftsmanship.
