Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED Programme)

Designing effective employment strategies through Local Economic Development in China, Beijing, 26 April 2007


The OECD LEED Programme and the International Labour Organisation organised a joint seminar on local economic and employment development strategies.  Hosted by the Chinese Ministry of Labour and Social Security, the event gathered several policy makers and practitioners from China and other OECD countries. 

The workshop took place within the framework of the LEED project on the Local Governance of Employment and Skills in East Asia. The workshop discussed strategies and initiatives in China and experts shared diverse lessons learned from OECD countries such as France, New Zealand and the United States.

Following this workshop, a report was prepared to present the overall themes raised in the presentations and discussions during the seminar in China. The report on the workshop is now available online.
