Panel 4.1 New Markets and New Jobs in the Digital Economy

As technology makes our lives easier, it also makes the job market more complex. Some full-time, long-term jobs are evolving into an uneven flow of “on-demand” tasks. Some traditional occupations are no longer required, while new occupations are being created, all the time.  Fighting unemployment and creating jobs remain the top priority of all governments after the recession. Appropriate policy measures are needed to favour the transfer of resources – labour, investment, firms – from declining to growing sectors.

This panel aimed at identifing effective policy principles to foster employment creation in new economic activities enabled by the digital economy and to mitigate the social costs of job displacement in mature industries.



Panel 4.2 Skills for a Digital World

How can we train the workforce of the future? What will be the skills mix required – technical, managerial, communications? How can we ensure that the lower-skilled and older workers are prepared and can adapt?

Workers across an increasing range of occupations need to acquire basic digital skills to accomplish their daily work. Accessing information online, using computing devices and software are now regular tasks for many. This increased use of digital technology is changing the way work is carried out and is raising the demand for complementary skills; for example, the capability to communicate on social networks, to brand products on e-commerce platforms.

This panel invited Ministers to discuss new approaches to education, training and re-skilling to meet the fast-changing demand for new skills in the digital economy.
