The Asian Economic Integration Report is an annual review of economic cooperation and integration that covers the 49 members of ADB in Asia and the Pacific. It documents progress made in trade and global value chains, cross-border investment, financial integration, the movement of people, and subregional cooperation. The theme chapter of the Asian Economic Integration Report 2019/2020 reviews the trend of demographic transition across Asia and the Pacific and examines the effects of aging on productivity and economic growth. It also explores the potential of technology to boost productivity in aging economies and discusses how innovations can help turn demographic challenges into opportunities. The Asian Economic Integration Report 2019/2020 introduces the new Global Economic Integration Index (GEII), which examines the progress of an economy’s integration into the world economy.

Cyn-Young Park is Director of the Regional Cooperation and Integration Division in the Economics Research and Regional Cooperation Department of the Asian Development Bank. In her current capacity, she manages a team of economists to examine economic and policy issues related to Regional Cooperation and Integration (RCI) and develop strategies and approaches to support RCI.
