Job-rich Growth in Asia

Strategies for Local Employment, Skills Development and Social Protection

Jobs-rich Growth in Asia discusses some of the most pressing issues that countries in Southeast Asia are facing in regard to boosting local employment and skills development while advancing social protection strategies in emerging, fast-growing labour markets. A joint OECD/ILO initiative, this book analyses local approaches in Asia to modernise labour markets and skills strategies and shows how local recovery is taking place through a combination of policy measures on employment creation, skills development and social protection.

Chapter 5, "Realising a job-rich recovery: strategies for local job-creation, skills development and social protection", outlines the main elements analysed throughout the report focusing on the dimensions of the crisis, the role of local governments, and recovery strategies towards a more sustainable development path. The Chapter outlines development strategies to promote a job-rich recovery and the capacities that countries need to build to implement them with success. A set of ten principles and policy suggestions for governments and socio-economic actors to accelerate this transition conclude the chapter.
