Annex B 5.1: Australia Singapore Green Skills Roundtable
Download print version
Area of Cooperation
Skills and Capabilities for Green Growth
To better inform and support the development of skills and capabilities required by the workforce across new and emerging occupations in the green economy in Singapore and Australia.
The Australia-Singapore Green Skills Roundtable (ASGSR) will serve as an informal platform that draws together policy, technical and subject-matter experts from relevant government agencies from both countries. The ASGSR will exchange information, experience and best practice on areas relating to identifying and assessing the core skills and competencies required for workers to take on jobs and occupations in the green economy. Topics for discussion at the ASGSR will be jointly identified on a needs basis, and could include for example the new expertise required to perform jobs in areas such as clean hydrogen, renewable energy and innovations in waste management, the circular economy or the built environment.
Outcomes from these exchanges are expected to further expand Singapore's and Australia's knowledge and ability to equip workers with skills and capabilities to effectively participate in the green economy.
Any potential future joint activities would be determined by the ASGSR discussions and consultations.
To commence in first quarter 2023.
Lead agencies will report on the ASGSR discussions (e.g., outcomes, recommendations) to the GEA Action Team.
