The Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Strategy 2020 has identified regional cooperation and integration (RCI) as one of the three development agendas in its fight for alleviating poverty in the Asia and Pacific region. By 2020, about 30 percent of ADB's operations will be in RCI, which has vast potential for accelerating economic growth, reducing poverty and economic disparity, raising productivity and employment, and strengthening institutions. It can improve a poor country's possibilities for growth by expanding trade and joint investment with its neighbors, strengthening transport and information connections, and improving its information and communication technology.
