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.



Regional strategies for strengthening regional connectivity

Regional connectivity requires integrating different types of regional networks, ranging from infrastructure networks to those concerned with knowledge-sharing. As they evolve, these networks are becoming more complex and interdependent. Developing regional networks in a strategic and coordinated way will spread the benefits more evenly across Asia and the Pacific, particularly to the least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and small island developing States. Given the unique spatial contexts in which they are situated, these countries will require different approaches and modalities for strengthening regional connectivity.
