World Youth Skills Day celebrated

Activities to celebrate World Youth Skills Day and promote the 46th WorldSkills Competition in Shanghai in September next year were held yesterday.

The day highlights the importance of developing youth skills and its role in social and economic growth and has been observed every year since the United Nations General Assembly declared July 15 as World Youth Skills Day in 2014.

This year’s celebrations featured promotions for next year’s event to attract more youths to develop a passion for skills.

On Tuesday evening, landmark buildings in Lujiazui, Pudong, were illuminated with competition mascots and slogans along with information about World Youth Skills Day.

Yesterday, a skills fair was organized at the China (Shanghai) Entrepreneurs Public Training Base in Yangpu District where 15 masters demonstrated their prowess in activities ranging from making steamed buns and painting ink sticks to operating robots and decorating cakes.

Students also got a chance to learn about making thumb pianos and model vehicles.

Peng Chenlei, vice mayor of Shanghai, announced the launch of the 2020 vocational skills competition in Shanghai.

According to the organizing committee, this year’s competition will serve both Shanghai’s development strategies and preparation for next year’s 46th WorldSkills Competition.
