Abstract: This report provides a synthesis and assessment of the main results of the project, “Globalization, Adjustment, and the Challenge of Inclusive Growth.” This research project aimed to further understanding of the challenges of inclusive growth in Indonesia, the Philippines and Viet Nam, which provide interesting contrasting as well as common experiences that can help deepen understanding of the process of economic adjustment and globalization. Indonesia, the Philippines, and Viet Nam have seen a number of hits and misses with regard to employment generation and there is some commonality with regard to the disadvantaged across the three countries. At the same time, jobless growth was observed across the three countries and a persistent problem of underemployment was observed. Unemployment is also a major issue in urban areas and the youth. Employment shocks, then, have to be mitigated because of their adverse effects on the economic and psychosomatic life of workers and their families. The results regarding industrial adjustment also suggest focusing on a country’s comparative advantage, reduce major policy shocks, and align general wages with that of comparator countries. As a way forward, social partnership has been suggested to improve employer-employee relations and labor productivity.
