A descriptive approach was taken to analyze temporary worker labor policy within APEC. This report does not attempt to
policies or to label existing policies as being restrictive versus facilitating. Rather the purpose of the report is to provide a
of all temporary worker labor polices across APEC. This research is very much an exercise of identifying, collecting, sortin
Objectives
The objectives of the temporary worker labor policy analysis were to:
    Identify and locate all relevant FTAs, RTAs, MOUs and MOAs that have been executed between APEC economies.
    Create a digital repository (which is provided in the CD accompanying this report) of all available FTA/FTAs, MOU
    Construct a comparative catalog of all relevant APEC FTAs, RTAs, MOU/MOAs. This catalog will contain in-depth
    Compare the level of policy detail within labor provisions, across agreements, and across economies.
    Analyze the similarities (convergence) and differences (divergence) in the language used to address temporary w
    Provide suggestions for APEC-wide model measures for temporary worker mobility.
