  2. Short-term employment and labour market outlook and key challenges in G20 countries

    15 April 2011

    The objective of this note is two-fold: i) to review the most recent employment and labour market trends in a period of highly differentiated recovery from the global downturn; and ii) to highlight selected key structural issues in G-20 labour markets and the challenges. The note shows that all G 20 countries face substantial labour market challenges going forward to promote productive employment and decent work opportunities for all. Some of these have arisen during the crisis and recovery; others reflect longer-term structural issues that require further policy attention.
