Making trade work for inclusive growth: the role of skills development

On 30 June 2015, David Cheong presented ETE-II research at EC EuropeAid’s InfoPoint venue on how trade relates to technological diffusion and innovation, new forms of enterprise and inter-firm relations through outsourcing and offshoring, and increased specialization and new lines of work, which all demand higher-level technical and managerial skills. The research also provided information on addressing skills challenges in a globalized world in order to make trade-induced development more broad-based.
