Digital automation is transforming the world with unprecedented scope and speed, and its impact is compelling. This report highlights the impact of AI technology has on Asia Pacific’s workforce. It also outlines policy recommendations to leaders of higher education, government, and industry.
This report is based on realities and experiences from Asia and the Pacific, and provides various perspectives on what AI for social good may look like in this region. More importantly, the report offers suggestions from the research community on how policymakers can encourage, use, and regulate AI for social good.

AEWorking Paper commissioned by the Australian Government to inform the APEC project to develop a labour mobility framework/ cooperation across the Asia-Pacific region. The overview paper was developed by experts from the APRU Population Aging Program, exploring the role of demographic change on labour force and economic growth in APEC.
The Regulating AI: Debating Approaches and Perspectives from Asia and Europe webinar series was created to open an exchange discussing emerging approaches to the relation of artificial intelligence (AI) in different parts of the world.
This synthesis report provides an overview of the webinar series and key considerations of each session.

Aging has become one of the key policy concerns in the Asia and Pacific economies. Policy makers in the region urgently need to understand the scale of demographic changes, their impact on productivity and growth, and the underlining mechanisms behind the aging and growth nexus.
This monograph aims to draw upon existing knowledge and evidence to elucidate the role of technology in addressing the economic and labor market opportunities and challenges posed by aging. By doing so, policy makers in the region can develop and deliver solutions to harness technology for productive silver years to maximize the gains from longevity dividends.
