The Survey 2014 will examine the region’s challenges to support its economic growth and to promote inclusive and sustainable development. Part I of the report will focus on the region’s outlook as it contends with the ongoing global recovery and assesses the region’s policy response to remaining and emerging vulnerabilities. A special theme is domestic resource mobilization in Asia-Pacific, which will explore the challenges on strengthening tax revenues. Part II of the report discusses strategic approaches to strengthen regional connectivity to achieve shared prosperity.



Strengthening institutional coordination and regional cooperation

To plan and implement joint strategies for regional connectivity, countries need robust institutional frameworks. To strengthen institutional coordination and regional cooperation, intergovernmental organizations and programmes can serve as neutral platforms not only for policy coordination to establish regional norms but also for implementing global statistical standards for joint planning and monitoring, and for exploring new modalities for financing.
