Tech disruption calls for strong retraining programmes: Amro
News Type: Expo News
The Asean+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (Amro), a Singapore-based independent regional surveillance unit, recently said, technological advancements will threaten significant job losses in the Asean region, particularly in least developed economies like Cambodia, and that carefully designed mechanisms need to be put in place in these countries to retrain the workforce.
In a recent blog post, Amro said the problem of the evolution of technology and its impact on local workforces is particularly pressing for the labour-intensive garment industry and for Cambodia, a country in which about 90 percent of manufactured exports are made up of textiles.
