Expect to see continuing activity in the private education sector this year as governments emphasize Techinical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) as the solution to graduate unemployment rate. Countries ready themselves for the fourth industrial revolution and Malaysia markets itself as a regional hub for foreign students.
