Project Summary

Rapid technological change, shifting workforce needs and new business practices are altering the employment landscape at a pace with which many economies are struggling to keep up. Developing human capital under these conditions is a challenge often compounded by other prevailing structural barriers. Complex regulatory systems, bureaucratic institutions or outdated policy frameworks are among the barriers that continue to constrain several APEC economies from implementing progressive or ambitious human resource development strategies. As a result, many economies are not able to meet current and future labour market demands on a reliable or sustainable basis.

The purpose of this workshop, planned for mid to late November 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, is to help targeted APEC developing economy participants improve their capacity to handle and overcome the structural barriers that are blocking the effective development of human resources in their respective economies. Targeted APEC economies are Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Participants from other economies are invited on a self-funded basis.

This activity aims to complement the EC’s ongoing APEC structural reform work and the HRDWG’s human resource development activities. The workshop will also provide an additional platform to discuss the results of the 2017 APEC Economic Policy Report on Structural Reform and Human Capital Development.

Further information can be found at Attachment A. Specific details, including a draft agenda, timing and venue, and how to register participants, are in development and will be forwarded to EC and HRDWG members shortly.
