Manila, July 18, 2016 --- The Professional Regulation Commission and the Thailand Professional Qualification Institute (TPQI) held a two – day meeting last June 27 – 28, 2016 at the Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Main Building, PRC Manila. The objective of the activity is to compare and benchmark TPQI’s qualification on logistics and real estate services with the Philippine’s Customs Broker and Real Estate professional qualifications. This is a step closer to the alignment of qualifications under the ASEAN Qualifications Reference Frameworks (AQRF) as part of the ASEAN Integration. Another key purpose of the visit was to probe the possibility of forging an instrument of collaboration for mutual recognition of professional qualifications of our Real Estate Services and Customs Brokers professionals with their Thai counterparts.
The TPQI has high recognitions to PRC in terms of our Professional Qualification and System of Accreditation, proving that PRC is duly recognized by its other neighboring ASEAN Countries. Once the instrument of collaboration for mutual recognition of Real Estate and Customs Broker has already been created, it will pave the way for its replication by other professions.
