In April 2005, the Office of Regional Economic Integration (OREI) was established to support the Bank's work on regional cooperation and integration (RCI). In July 2006, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) adopted an RCI strategy to support ADB's overarching goal of poverty reduction through regional collective actions. Consistent with this strategy, OREI launched the Asia Regional Integration Center (ARIC) website in October 2006 as a one-stop web-based knowledge and information portal on the progress of RCI initiatives in the region. This period marked the first phase of an RCI-focused ARIC technical assistance (TA). Further, in April 2008, ADB adopted Strategy 2020, which identified regional integration as one of three development agendas and RCI as one of its core specialization and operational areas.
