Labour Demand and Trade in Manufactures:
Issues and Evidence from Malaysia
Evelyn S Devadason
Although it is generally assumed that improved trade for a country means more jobs for its citizens, this is not always the case. The author seeks to determine the situation in Malaysia, setting out first a comprehensive picture of the Malaysian labour market and trade in Malaysian manufactured goods and then links the trends to determine their impact on each other. This results, amongst other suggestions, in proposals for areas in which improvement and realignment of skills could make better use of the trading opportunities available. 183 pages with a bibliography, index, tables and figures.
