Active business committees advise program officials for each vocational and higher professional education specialty. These business partners assist in business needs investigations and actively participate in the governance of the higher professional education programs’ practice and internship activities. Vocational education programs in agricultural industries and construction have also been organized following the same approach, which is modeled after the role of local business in the design and administration of programs administered by community and technical colleges in the U.S. Such a program can also quickly respond to government programs to re-train employees who are displaced if companies fail or move out of the region. Close relations among business, government, school, and other community stakeholders can also allow lead to joint efforts for regional economic development planning and programs designed to attract new businesses.
