The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the People's Republic of China (PRC) both have stories to tell the emerging economies - accounts of decades of development knowledge and experience that would serve as a valuable source of learning and an excellent starting point for regional cooperation and collaboration. The need to share development knowledge with other developing member countries and emerging economies around the world led PRC and ADB to establish a joint knowledge-sharing platform (KSP) in 2009.

The aim of the KSP is 'to share knowledge, facilitate dialogue, and strengthen partnerships and networks among the governments of the PRC and other developing countries in Asia and the Pacific Region (the region).' Its focus is on emerging issues and challenges faced by developing countries in the region.
