Promoting Innovation and Inclusion for a Prosperous Asia: Proceedings of the ADB-Asian Think Tank Development Forum 2014

This publication summarizes global and regional policy developments, country-specific experiences and policy issues on innovation and inclusion as discussed during the ADB-Asian Think Tank Development Forum 2014.

Partnering with the Korea Development Institute, ADB held the forum on 20–21 November 2014 at Seoul, Republic of Korea. The forum featured research papers that tackled issues on globalization and regional integration, innovation, middle-income trap, inclusive growth and social protection, and poverty and inequality. This publication documents the dynamic exchange of ideas and information during the 2-day event.

The ADB-Asian Think Tank Development Forum is an annual knowledge sharing event under the ADB-Asian Think Tank Network (ATTN), established by ADB and the Asian think tanks in 2013. The major objective of the network is to promote knowledge sharing and capacity building of the think tanks, particularly those involved in supporting governments in formulating and implementing medium- or long-term development plans and in responding to emerging issues.
