ILO research analyzes level of impact digitalization has on developing countries  

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has released a study to identify whether developing countries have the potential to achieve the same level of economic success and advancement that developed nations have attained through industrialization, considering the multifaceted factors beyond technology that influence development trajectories. 


The focus of the study is on the effects of the rise in the digital economy in developing countries and its potential to reshape their structural and productive landscapes. 


The research, authored by Sarah Cook and Uma Rani titled: “Platform work in developing economies: Can digitalization drive structural transformation?” seen by Nairametrics examines the types of jobs created by digital platforms, such as delivery services, driving, caregiving, and web-based professional tasks like coding.
