Asia Pacific Human Development Report

2007 Human Development Awards: Excellence and Innovation across Human Development Report corporate principles for a Regional Report

The Report highlights that free trade can benefit the poor of Asia-Pacific if countries adopt bold new policies that harness trade and economic growth to promote people’s well-being. It also highlights the important sub-regional variations in employment performance across the region. Employment growth increased slightly in South Asia, but plummeted in East Asia, mainly because of a slowdown in employment growth in China.
