Objectives of the meeting
The overall aim of the meeting is strengthen the capacity of constituents, policy makers and practitioners at local level to undertake effective employment recovery and skills strategies in response to the financial and economic crisis.
Specifically, the meeting should contribute to:
- Increased understanding of the employment and skills impact in relation to the crisis;
- Improved capacity for the design of effective local employment and skills strategies to support existing national responses to the crisis
As a means to achieve the above objectives, experiences will be shared among OECD and non-OECD country participants on policy approaches to employment and skills development, and ways to connect them with local economic development. Adapted local policy responses to the global economic crisis in participant Asian countries will be identified and discussed.
