The TA will finance the activities of (i) administering the ABO web site daily for updating markets information (ii) improving the contents and enhancing the database on Asian bond markets including securitization and (iii) preparing the Asia Bond Monitor report. The availability of information through the website has helped to increase the transparency, liquidity, and depth of bond markets in Asia, lower funding cost for Asian bond issuers, and increase cross border capital flows. The ASTFG of the Asian Bond Market Initiative (ABMI) has recommended that ADB continue to maintain and develop the ABO.
