Public financial management, including tax administration and policy, is a core thematic priority under the Second Governance and Anticorruption Action Plan (GACAP II) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), which is mainstreamed throughout ADB's operations. Moreover, ADB's Strategy 2020 (2008) emphasizes good governance, capacity development and partnership as key drivers of change. Tax administration is an important tool for strengthening governance, which is also a component of the regional public goods pillar of the ADB's Regional Cooperation and Integration (RCI) strategy.
In order for ADB's developing member countries (DMCs) to reform their tax policy and administration, and for the ADB to provide relevant advice to DMCs, it is essential to have information on internationally comparable data, benchmarks and good practices, which can be adapted to each DMC's context. Better designed tax policy and administration in turn will help increase tax revenue collection.
