Description

In July 2010, to inform policy design and program implementation in APEC‘s inclusive and sustainable growth agenda, the HRDWG held the APEC HRD Experts Meeting on Human Resource Impacts of the Global Economic Crisis in Jakarta, Indonesia. At the meeting, APEC economies shared their responses to the global economic crisis in terms of the interventions carried out in labor market systems and social safety nets.

This report compiles some of the experiences shared at this meeting. A chapter presents a general summary, 10 case studies detail the impacts and interventions in individual APEC economies, and a research paper examines the labor market policy responses in APEC economies to the worldwide recession.
