G20 countries have recognised the importance of promoting effective mutual learning among G20, low-income and other developing countries as a distinct value-added of the G20 approach. In its 2014 Brisbane Development Update, the G20 Development Working Group (DWG) highlighted the paramount importance of human resources development and employable skills for strong and inclusive growth. Under the guidance of the co-facilitators of its Human Resource Development pillar (China, Korea and Russia), the G20 DWG will host a knowledge sharing exercise on skills and labour mobility, with the support of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
The workshop will take place in the framework of the OECD 2015 Development Centre Week (DEV Week), and will bring together experts and policy makers from G20, low income and other developing countries to share their experiences on skills and human resources development as well as labour mobility. It will also explore and discuss relevant areas of work for both the G20 DWG and the EWG, aiming to enhance coherence and future G20 coordination in these fields.
