The Transformation of Work in the Asia-Pacific in the 21st Century
project pioneers a multi-stakeholder approach. It provides policymakers and leading thinkers with a platform to exchange ideas and collaborate with researchers to tackle challenges presented by the rapid digitalization of society. As the second element in a series of multidisciplinary collaborations funded by Google.org, The Transformation of Work in the Asia-Pacific in the 21st Century: Key Policy Implications report informs policymakers to support the creation of relevant frameworks and policies.
Led by Professor Kar Yan Tam, Dean of the HKUST Business School and APRU, the project outputs included a series of dissemination events to brief policymakers on report findings applicable to their economies. Part of APRU’s continued efforts to extend policy impact and maximize its network effect, the briefings aimed to enable governments to react more quickly to the impact and influence of new technological developments, share best practices and find solutions to challenges emerging from the transformation of their economies and future of work. The content for each event of the five dissemination events was tailored to the specific needs of the host economy, drawing on the insights developed through the project. APRU and project leads will disseminate the results to ensure that project findings are shared widely and applied to regional policy frameworks
