Future Labour Market Paper
The world keeps changing and so does the labour market. It is important to anticipate and react to future changes in the environment in advance for the effectiveness and sustainability of our community and economy.

Having recognised the importance and urgency of the matter, The World Federation commissioned an expert in the field to write a paper on the upcoming trends of the Future Labour Market for the 2020's and 2030's to provide guidance and direction to our community youths on the future careers to prepare them to make intelligent and informed career choices so that they are able to achieve and excel in their profession.


The Future Labour Market paper was presented in the 6th Executive Council Meeting in Mumbai India. The World Federation would like to undertake wider consultation from the community grassroots' members. Your opinion and feedback will assist on the direction to move forward.Please write to to give your feedback.
