Market Assessment

Peru: Study of Export Potential of Wood Furniture, ILO Lab 2017

    This research complements the Lab's ongoing action-research in Peru's wood and furniture sector. Through this action-research it developed a hypothesis that one of the main constraints to job quality in the sector could be indirectly linked to limitations in access to international markets. The research seeks to answer the following questions:

    1. Is promoting Peru's wooden furniture exports an effective means to generate sustainable and formal jobs in the country?
    2. What are the conditions, with what type of support and under what terms can such potential be realized?
