This publication identifies technical, policy, and administrative tax capacity issues faced by 10 countries Southeast Asia and explores measures to strengthen domestic resource mobilization (DRM).

This publication looks into potential policy and administrative measures that can strengthen DRM and foster international tax cooperation as the region reels from the impacts of the pandemic.
