Abstract

Development trajectories of countries within the Asia-Pacific region vary significantly across countries. While some countries have experienced tremendous advancements in terms of economic and social indicators, others have not been quite as successful. Historical and cultural differences may explain part of the different development experiences of countries in the region. Yet, there is no doubt that the quality of governance and the effectiveness of public institutions are critical factors that contribute positively to the process of development.

Indeed, it is universally accepted and incorporated into the 2030 Agenda that more effective, accountable and inclusive institutions (SDG 16), and gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls (SDG 5) are important for development.
