Regional: Southeast Asia Public Management, Financial Sector, and Trade Policy Facility

Sovereign Project | 53071-001

The transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will provide technical support, capacity building, and policy advice to prepare a series of ensuing programs and projects to strengthen public management, financial sector, and trade policies in the Southeast Asian developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) during 2019-2022. The TA facility will combine supports for policy and reform actions required by the Southeast Asian DMCs to prepare various policy-based and project loans during 2019-2021. The TA facility, therefore, enables ADB to strengthen its engagement with policies and reforms in the Southeast Asian DMCs, thereby strengthening results and outcomes of the reforms, catalyzing resources needed for development, strengthening ADB's knowledge services and support to the DMCs, and improving ADB''s response to client needs with respect to policy designs, capacity building, and knowledge management.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Sound macroeconomic management and progressive reforms have played a pivotal role in Southeast Asia''s economic performance. The banking system was restructured, with more tightened financial regulations. Local currency bond markets have been deepened to reduce country exposure to exchange rate risks and capital flow volatility. Fiscal policy has been more prudent and targeted at achieving the medium- to long-term national development goals that are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. Industrial and trade policies have successfully established globally competitive economic clusters by fostering international trade and foreign investment and improving ease of doing business. Governments continue to tackle corruption and improve governance and institution by adopting international standards and practices.

While sound economic fundamentals and prudent macroeconomic policy will continue to uphold an optimistic outlook, Southeast Asia''s continued growth prospect is not preordained. Policy reforms need to be further strengthened to address evolving development challenges and build resilience against emerging uncertainties. These challenges include: (i) deepening capital markets and financial inclusion; (ii) strengthening public finance management; and (iii) expanding trade and competitiveness.

The TA facility is aligned with the operational priorities of the Strategy 2030 in terms of strengthening governance and institutional capacity (operational priority 6) and fostering regional cooperation and integration (operational priority 7). It will directly contribute to the Southeast Asian DMCs'' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It catalyzes resources and synergies for responding to the DMCs'' emerging and evolving policy and reform challenges through policy advisory services, knowledge management support, and capacity building to put forward the key reform agendas in three areas: (i) capital markets and financial inclusion; (ii) public finance and management; and (iii) trade and competitiveness.
