Managing Migration to Support Inclusive and Sustainable Growth

Publication | January 2013

This report builds on these round tables and aims to identify innovative models for managing new and emerging forms of labor migration.

Since 2011, ADBI and the OECD have held an annual Roundtable on Labor Migration in Asia. The success of these events reflects the realization that meeting challenges means reaching out to colleagues in other countries. This report builds on these round tables and aims to identify innovative models for managing new and emerging forms of labor migration. To that end, it also provides, for the first time in a single publication, a statistical overview of international migration in some Asian countries. These data - assembled from different sources, and still reflecting the partial coverage of the phenomenon in many countries - should help readers to understand the impact and role of international migration in Asia.

Co-published with Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
