The Myanmar Skill Competition 2018 Automobile Technology, which is Myanmar’s first ever contest, is taking place at the No.5 Industrial Training Center in Magway from 28 to 31 March.
The competition is held as a preparatory contest before participating in the ASEAN Skills Competition (2018) that will take place in Bangkok in August, said Dr Aung Moe Nyo, chief minister for Magway Region.
Roads and automobiles are important to ensure smooth transportation in the country for trading goods and travelling, he said.
He urged contenders to practice until their skills reach international standards.
“We will select four of the best contenders from our competition.
They will be trained for four months in Yangon. Two of them will have to participate in the competition in Thailand representing Myanmar,” said U Hla Kyaing, associate secretary of the Myanmar Engineering Society.
Competitors are trainees from the No.5 Industrial Training Center and 22 young people who are under 22 years old and working for automobile repair and servicing workshops.
