Realizing Job Needs across the Paciﬁc
This paper analyzes the common challenges and drivers of job growth in the Pacific, and policy options to improve the labor market.
The Paciﬁc region includes countries with high population growth rates and those with declining populations. Labor market issues are therefore diverse, and efforts to address them are best developed in country-speciﬁc contexts. Nonetheless, this overview highlights some of the dominant labor market challenges in the region, considers underlying economic and labor market conditions, and discusses policy options for addressing these challenges.
