Publication | February 2009

Regional cooperation and integration is one of the three complementary strategic agendas in Strategy 2020, which envisions that activities will increase in all operational areas, and lending will reach at least 30% by 2020.


  • At present, ADB leads the promotion of regional cooperation among the multilateral development banks.
  • Increased lending for regional cooperation will require greater financial resources, technical expertise, and investment in knowledge products.
