They underwent both theoretical and practical tests, encompassing three critical areas: 1) accurate diagnosis of machine faults, 2) the speed and precision of core component disassembly, and 3) the complete machine delivery handover.

The competition winners are as follows: Mr. Zhu Puyu from Thailand (1st Prize Winner), Mr. Komsun Juto from Thailand (2nd Prize Winner), and Mr. Thieu Manh Cuong from Vietnam (3rd Prize Winner). These winners will represent the LiuGong Asia Pacific region at the 6th LiuGong Global Technical Skills Competition, hosted by LiuGong headquarters in November, where they will have the chance to win a USD 10,000 prize.
