Description The TA seeks to support ADB's mandate to promote regional cooperation and integration (RCI) by strengthening the quality and impact of ADB's RCI knowledge products, particularly the Asian Economic Integration Report (AEIR), and RCI-related databases. This subproject will produce and disseminate the AEIR 2022, which will feature a theme chapter on digital services trade.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy While regional integration continues to deepen in Asia and the Pacific, regional cooperation efforts are likely to become more challenging as remaining areas of RCI are much more complex. Trade tariffs have come down but other border barriers such as quantitative restrictions, border administration, and clearance procedures will be harder to tackle. The same is true of behind-the-border constraints related to logistics, infrastructure, and institutions. These emerging challenges coupled with the fast-changing economic environment require policy makers to monitor regional economic issues and forge policy responses both nationally and regionally. ADB has the mandate and expertise in producing RCI-related knowledge products. Under its Strategy 2030, RCI is set as one of its operational priorities. Strategy 2030 also underscores the value of ADB's knowledge and research in raising understanding of critical issues for action and contributing to global and regional forums by offering regional perspectives.
Impact

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
