This report starts with a discussion on the mechanisms through which exchange rate shocks are transmitted to employment. Industry specific channels highlight important mechanisms through which the impact of exchange rate movements on employment can either be dampened or amplified. The economy wide channels highlight the need for an integrated industrial and development policy that can coordinate and influence these broad based transmission channels.
