ADB estimates that developing member countries (DMCs) in Asia and the Pacific require $8 trillion to finance national and regional infrastructure projects during 2010–2020 to meet the growing demand. The need for infrastructure in Southeast Asia to sustain and accelerate the region’s economic development in the next decade is estimated to exceed $1 trillion. While ADB’s assistance to DMCs in Southeast Asia has nearly doubled in recent years, there is an increasing need for substantial multilateral and bilateral cofinancing, as well as a need to create favorable conditions for attracting private sector financing through public-private partnerships.

This Compendium of ADB’s Transport Sector Operations in Southeast Asia provides an illustrated snapshot of some of ADB’s past, ongoing and future projects and technical assistance support in the transport sector across Southeast Asia.
