Southeast Asian Economic Outlook
Southeast Asia and peer learning
Mauritius, Morocco, Costa Rica and Peru have become members of the Development Centre. Their engagement confirms the Centre’s role as a unique forum where OECD and emerging economies come together to share their experience of economic and social development.
Two billion people, or two- thirds of the global labour force, work in the informal sector. These workers receive low wages and have no formal contracts or benefits. Compounding matters, formal sector job loss is likely to increase during the current economic crisis. Is Informal Normal?, a new study by OECD Development Centre, provides evidence and guidance for policy makers on promoting more and better jobs for all.
The creation of more and better jobs remains a key challenge all over the world, not least due to the increasing demand for jobs in many developing countries. This joint ELS/DEV seminar presents recent experiences from China, India and Brazil.
Informal employment is at record levels worldwide with severe consequences for poverty in poor countries, according to Is Informal Normal?, a new report by the OECD Development Centre.
The Development Centre thus is an OECD knowledge centre on development. Its mission is to forge on-going dialogue between Member and non-Member countries.
