The Thai teams are shooting for gold in a variety of skilled professions, including hairdressing. They are just a few of around 1000 young vocational workers from around the world who are training for the upcoming competition, to be held in Leipzig this year.
Our Made in Germany series accompanies the young contestants as they train for and compete in their events. In this edition, we pay a visit to Bangkok to see how hairdressers, jewelry designers and welders are honing their skills. Report by Marion Hütter.
