Aimed at senior policy makers and development practitioners, this report is organized into three main themes-- inclusive development, coordination, and accountability and risk management-- demonstrating how infrastructure has always played a central role in the East Asian development model by promoting economic growth, sharing the benefits of growth with poorer groups and communities, and connecting countries within the region and with the rest of the world. The study also provides suggestions on a new framework for infrastructure development in East Asia that can help avoid costly mistakes and promote cooperation amongst policy makers, development partners, nongovernmental organizations, and the public and private sectors.
