Future of Regional Cooperation in Asia and the Pacific

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Dec 08, 2020 | Asian Development Bank

Over the past 50 years, regional cooperation and integration (RCI) in Asia and the Pacific has accelerated, spurring robust economic growth and a sharp reduction in poverty. Despite these gains, the region now faces considerable challenges, with disruptions to global trade, supply chains, and travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Consisting of papers by renowned scholars and Asian Development Bank staff, this publication covers four major areas: public goods, trade and investment, financial cooperation, and regional health cooperation. To ensure a recovery that is robust, inclusive, and sustainable will require stronger and more coordinated actions to reconnect economies, rebuild trade and transport links, and safely restore free movement for people drawing on digitalization and innovation.
