Regional Connectivity for Shared Prosperity

Regional Connectivity for Shared Prosperity

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Connectivity is a cornerstone of regional economic cooperation and integration – and has become a major priority for the countries of Asia and the Pacific, especially in the context of efforts to find new drivers of regional economic growth, and to create additional domestic and aggregate regional demand.

To best unlock the potential of ever-more closely interlinked production networks and value chains, a broader perspective on connectivity will be key. This kind of connectivity should not be considered sector by sector, but rather as part of an integrated whole, encompassing the development of corridors of prosperity through networks of trade, transport, ICT, energy, people, and technology.

This 2014 ESCAP’s annual Theme Study: Regional Connectivity for Shared Prosperity explores strategies for strengthening regional connectivity.
