World Trade Report 2017

Trade, Technology and Labour

By World Trade Organization

The World Trade Report 2017 discusses the effects of international trade and technological progress on labour market outcomes. It aims to provide an objective and balanced, research-based assessment of these effects in developed and developing countries and to inform readers about possible policy responses to adjustment problems and distributional effects, regardless of their sources. It is  part of the response of the WTO to the current anti-trade rhetoric fuelled by concerns that trade
may cause job losses and raise inequality.
