On behalf of the Steering Committee, Technical Committee, and Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to Malang at the 2nd International Conference on Vocational Education and Training. The ICOVET as an international scientific forum was firstly held in 2017 by the Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Negeri Malang. After last year event, we received tremendous feedbacks that warmed our hearts. Since the ICOVET is a valuable place to gather international scholars or experts working in the field of vocational education to present their latest cutting-edge research, this conference is double as an initial step to secure a sustainable future for education. The event will be an ideal platform for interchanging the latest concepts, methods, current issues, and research findings around the globe and providing the basis for future relationships between research and education. This year we focused on the theme of "Exploring Vocational Education and Training in ASEAN" with keynote speakers from Malaysia, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Algeria. More than 100 papers were submitted to the ICOVET 2018 from contributors around the world such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Taiwan, Korea. However, only high-qualified papers have been accepted for the oral presentations based on the review's results and recommendation. We hope that our support on the sustainable future in vocational education and training does not end here and that we could learn a thing or two from this occasion. Finally, we would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to all contributors, partners, and the committees for the support and high spirit to plan this event. Thank you, and may the positive outcome linger until the next ICOVET.
