Asia-Pacific Human Development Report 2006 - TRADE ON HUMAN TERMS - Transforming Trade for Human Development in Asia and the Pacific
PDF File Size: 2.79 MB | Download   
The Asia-Pacific region has embraced free trade, but free trade will not embrace the poor unless countries pursue a bold new policy agenda harnessing economic growth to promote human development. Asia and the Pacific is rapidly becoming not just the workshop of the world, but the back office too. There are many examples from history that demonstrate what can happen when commercial gain takes precedence over human well being. Trade has never been a matter for private industry alone; it has always been
subject to active intervention from the state. The main channel for all these effects of trade on human development, for better or for worse, is through employment. These jobs cannot be confined to the modern urban industrial or service sectors; they must also be generated in the rural areas and in agriculture. The only way to survive in a
competitive global market is by upgrading industry and increasing both the quality and
quantity of output. Asia has also been a pioneer in the offshoring of IT and business process services. The most successful trading countries have invested heavily in the basics of human development. States have to identify a few sectors and industries that
have both shortand long-term potential in international markets and guide enterprises toward them. Better to resist the immediate temptations of a bilateral embrace and build up slower but ultimately more productive multilateral relationships. Asia and the Pacific will remain at the forefront of global development and will offer fresh lessons to the rest of the world.
