Description

The proliferation of teleworking and other flexible work arrangements during the COVID-19 pandemic is going to have a long-term effect on the way we work even after the pandemic ends. It is crucial to foresee the long-term economic implications of such a change and timely adopt regulatory measures to manage them.

The report contains a substantial overview of trends and economic effects of the proliferation of flexible work arrangements, comprehensively covering such pivotal themes as digital infrastructure readiness of APEC for going “remote”, regulatory practices adopted in the region and the digital upskilling trends in the APEC economies.

T
he report also proposes recommendations that APEC policymakers could take into account when forming their post-COVID-19 adaptation plans.
