The Asia Foundation's Economic Reform and Development Program

In recent decades, Asia has been one of the fastest growing regions. Despite this, inequality has continued to rise. Bruce Tolentino, Asia Foundation Director of Economic Programs, explains some of the causes of inequality and how our programs try to address these problems.

The Asia Foundation's Economic Reform and Development programs support Asian initiatives that enhance economic governance aimed at accelerating and sustaining broad-based economic growth. Based on decades of experience, the Foundation focuses on reform of the regulatory and structural constraints to investment, enterprise, and participation. The Asia Foundation promotes open and inclusive economic governance not only within countries but also across economies.
