The digital economy is developing rapidly but unevenly across countries, firms, and people. While the rapid deployment of digital technologies such as robotics and 3D printing can usher in a new era of productivity, create efficiencies and generate jobs. Given the dynamic impact of digitalisation on the labour market – both in terms of employment and occupational structure – it is becoming increasingly important for developing economies to adapt to the rapidly changing skills landscape. To become more competitive, developing economies need to re-equip and re-skill their workforce with skills that are going to become important in the future. The main aim of this study is to identify these future skills.
