East Asia Pacific at Work: Employment, Enterprise and Well-Being

— theme: Youth Employment
— country: Asia, Pacific
— type: Studies

The report, a follow-up to the Bank’s World Development Report 2013: Jobs, contributes to a relatively small body of empirical evidence on the impact of employment policies and reform options in East Asia Pacific. The region’s diverse emerging economies – ranging from mostly rural to urbanizing to small, remote islands – defy a one-size-fits-all approach. Economic and demographic changes in the region, as well as its relatively short labor history, present urgency and opportunity for countries in East Asia Pacific to adopt a new, lower-cost social protection model than countries in regions with long-established policies.
