Regional connectivity for shared prosperity

image of Regional connectivity for shared prosperity
As networks in the Asian and Pacific region become increasingly integrated and interdependent, the future of regional connectivity will depend on how closely Asia-Pacific countries work together. Regional strategies presented in this Theme Study can be the basis for this cooperation. However, success will depend on strengthening institutional coordination between Governments, both across sectors and across borders. Greater cooperation is also needed to identify new sources of finance for developing regional networks. To move the region's connectivity agenda forward, Government should enlist the support of the private sector, academia and civil society, which are the ambassadors and potential beneficiaries of enhanced regional connectivity.

Regional connectivity for shared prosperity

The Asia and the Pacific region has grown rapidly, with the intensification of its networks of trade, production and people. However, these networks are denser and more productive in some parts of the region than in others. Over the coming decades, countries across Asia and the Pacific will be looking for ways to expand connectivity and to ensure that the region’s growing prosperity is more widely shared.
