There have been limited research studies that explore the intrinsic link between Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and the promotion of decent work in Myanmar. However, a collaborative effort between the Centre for Economic and Social Development (CESD) and International Labour Organization (ILO) has made it possible to understand this relationship.
The research study, From Extractive to Non-Extractive Based Foreign Investment: An Analysis on the Impact of Foreign Direct Investment and Decent Work Conditions in Myanmar aims to shed light on how FDI trends in Myanmar have an impact on decent work.
The research study presents five areas of decent work are presented which include, employment opportunities, skills development and enhancement, equality at the work place, social protection and social dialogue.
For each area, substantial findings are presented based off stakeholders‟ perspectives and the current initiatives taking place in Myanmar.
