Abstract:

The papers in this session are two examples of a series of industry studies by the Bureau of International Labor Affairs. In addition to these two, studies have been completed on oil, footwear, and sugar, and are underway on chemicals and electronics. Each of these studies takes a close look at the special features of a particular industry in constrast to some of the more broad ranging projects reported in other sessions. In conclusion, I would like to emphasize the fact that the objective of these studies is to improve the evaluation of trade policy. When changes in trade barriers are considered, it is critically important to know how domestic demand responds to import costs, how employment will be affected, and what will be the impact of the labor market experience of workers in the industry. The two industry studies presented here are an attempt to expand the amount of available information on these questions.
