HKUST IEMS co-hosted the International Conference on Human Resources and Economic Development on June 24th-26th at HKUST. The conference also was supported by the Institute for Advanced Study as part of its Program on Human Resources and Economic Development, the Department of Economics, the Division of Social Science, and the School of Humanities and Social Science. Albert Park, Director of HKUST IEMS, and Paul Glewwe of the University of Minnesota were the conference organizers.
Leading development economists presented their research on the process of human capital formation, including the development of both cognitive and noncognitive skills, how different dimensions of human capital affect wage and employment outcomes in the labor market, and how policy interventions can best support positive educational and development outcomes. A panel discussion on education policy in developing countries featured experts of the World Bank, the UK Department for International Development, and US AID, elicited lively discussion and generated valuable insights on how research can inform the design of effective education policies in developing and emerging economies.
