In this issue:

  • Assessing Current Talent in ASEAN

  • Assessing ASEAN’s Industrialization Plans
  • Q+A: What You Need to Know About ASEAN’s Human Resource Landscape

As the fifth-largest economy in the world — the quality of human resources is a vital ingredient to sustain the development and competitiveness of ASEAN member states.

Understanding the dynamics of ASEAN’s labor market can prove a time-consuming endeavor for new market entrants as well as established investors seeking to expand their operations. Comprised of 10 member states, each with its unique challenges, regulations, and opportunities, optimizing labor in the region is a significant task.

In this issue of the ASEAN Briefing magazine, we provide an overview of current talent availability in ASEAN, and future factors that will impact human resource development in the region. We then explore hiring costs in the bloc before finally focusing on the industrialization plans of select ASEAN members.
