ERIA-The Asian Network: The Future of Work in Asia
The world of work is changing fast - and mapping out healthy new work models is necessary to channel that change into the creation of stronger labor markets and sufficient safeguards. Job creation was already high on the global agenda before the advent of COVID-19 and resulting economic devastation, as was policy-making that can ideally help both workers and their employers.
The pace of technology adoption is expected to remain unabated and may accelerate in some areas. Skills gaps continue to be high as in demand skills across jobs change in the next five years. The number of jobs destroyed will be surpassed by the number of ‘jobs of tomorrow’ created, Those are key findings from the report Future of Jobs from WEF in 2020.
This virtual conference will gather 15 Leaders from Asia and Europe (Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong-Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Pakistan, France, UK and Germany) sharing their expertise in the Future of Work, Entrepreneurship and Technology for Social Good.
