WorldSkills São Paulo 2015 officially signed
In a press conference & ceremony involving the Brazilian President (Ms Dilma Rousseff), the CNI* President (Mr Robson Andrade), and WorldSkills International President (Simon Bartley), the MOU/hosting agreement was signed for São Paulo hosting the 2015 Competition. This was a very important event and, apart from getting outstanding media coverage, it showed the total support from the Brazilian government and industry towards skills competitions and their relevance to developing the skilled workforce of Brazil. It also highlighted the importance and focus they place on hosting WorldSkills São Paulo 2015.
We look forward to preparing for the 43th WorldSkills Competition.
