Institutional Document | November 2017

This publication covers the progress of ADB in implementing its Operational Plan for Regional Cooperation and Integration, 2016–2020, focusing on 2016, by reviewing progress made and identifying areas for improvement.

Regional cooperation and integration (RCI) has become a valuable means for attaining national development goals. This corporate report takes stock of ADB’s RCI operations, focusing on 2016, by reviewing progress made and identifying areas for improvement. It complements ADB’s existing RCI reports by focusing on RCI progress aligned with the three operational directions (connectivity, competitiveness, and regional public goods and collective action) and the three approaches (nascent RCI, nonsovereign RCI, and intersubregional RCI) to RCI operational quality. This corporate report pools together and offers a one-stop source of information on RCI operations for both internal and external stakeholders.
