The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) JICA Project for Industrial Competitive Enhancement through Industrial Human Resource Development and Supply & Value Chain Development aims to strengthen the industrial human resource development lse (IHRD) and supply and value chain development (SVCD) of the local industry by developing improved operational models for IHRD and SVCD in collaboration with foreign companies in the Philippines through various pilot projects under these development categories. The IHRD project focuses on the automotive and parts industry, as well as fusion areas of IT and electronics such as engineering service outsourcing.

TESDA leads the Thematic Working Group (TWG) for IHRD-TVET in the implementation structure of the said project. To implement IHRD-TVET, a pilot activity has been implemented through the development of a training program to operationalize TESDA’s Area-based and Demand-driven TVET (ABDD TVET) policy. The Quality Cost Delivery (QCD) has been identified as one of the priority skills requirements of the automotive industry in Region IV-A.
