Financing Technical and Vocational Education and Training in the People's Republic of China

Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) systems are often burdened by a range of performance issues. Many of these are rooted in problems that countries, including the People's Republic of China (PRC), have in generating and allocating the necessary financial resources, and in spending them effectively. This note will discuss such issues and present policy recommendations based on insights gained in Asian Development Bank (ADB)-sponsored policy reviews of TVET in Guangdong and Hunan provinces.
