Two representatives from European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Mr. Alexander Plekhanov, Director for Transition Impact and Global Economics, EBRD Office of the Chief Economist and Mr. Richard Jones, AIIB-EBRD Business Development Director, visited HKU on 8 March 2019 and delivered a Knowledge Exchange (KE) Lecture on their 2018-19 Transition Report titled Work in Transition.

During the lecture, Mr. Plekhanov and Mr. Jones shared some interesting findings of the report, e.g. life-long learning programmes are needed to cope with an ageing workforce, as their average skill scores over the working life continue to decline after 30 years old. They also discussed with the audience how governments should respond to urbanisation, an ageing workforce or rising numbers of young people entering the labour market.

Full report can be found here.
