Human Resource Development in the Asia–Pacific
The literature on education, training and other aspects of human resource development in the Asia–Pacific region is still under-developed. Many country studies are emerging, together with regional programs initiated under ASEAN, APEC and PECC auspices. Many East Asian countries have proved that a human resource development-led strategy promotes economic growth and development. Upgrading of education and skills relevant to R&D and international competitiveness in technology-intensive manufacturing and services are evident in some newly-industrialising economies in the region. But more efforts are needed.
