The Global Programme "Partnership Approaches for Development-oriented Vocational Training and Labour Migration” (PAM) aims to implement development-oriented migration and mobility models for vocational training and employment in four partner countries. One of the partner countries is Viet Nam, where a new mobility scheme linking vocational training and migration for skilled workers is being piloted.
