About GAC in East Asia & Pacific

Three core principles guide governance work in EAP. First, improving governance requires leadership and coalition building. Second, partners outside the Bank must play the leading role in coalitions if improvements are to be sustained. Third, learning, experimentation, adaptation, and knowledge sharing are fundamental to address governance challenges.

The World Bank East Asia promotes improved governance across the region. Efforts to strengthen transparency, accountability, and efficient use of public authority feature in all our country dialogues, analytical exercises, and lending operations and we support these efforts by:

- Contributing to regional, country, sector, and project-level strategies to improve governance;

- Supporting efforts to improve governance at the country, sector, and project level;

- Strengthening relationships with key national, muli-lateral and civil society stakeholders active in governance.

The GAC Learning Events in the region characterize these efforts.
