Countries such as China, Sri Lanka, Lao PDR, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, and PNG have introduced, or are in the process of introducing, entrepreneurship education at various educational levels such as secondary, post-secondary, vocational and technical schools and higher education. Entrepreneurship or moreover entrepreneurship education within all education institutions is a high level priority in the new Cabinet of Republic of Indonesia as reflected in the Medium Term Development Plan, in a Presidential programme, and an inter-ministerial MoU.

The ILO is organising a regional workshop on Entrepreneurship Education and the Know About Business programme (KAB) to take place in Jakarta, Indonesia, from September 21st to the 23rd, 2010.
