The workshop discussed the 15 research proposals (below) submitted by 11 participating institutes from CAREC countries. Resource speakers from Cambridge University, Harvard University, Oxford University, Thammasat University, University of Missouri-Kansas City, and University of Newcastle, provided valuable insights on four key research areas of the CAREC Institute Research Program, 2009-2011:
- Structural Change,
- Regional Integration,
- Resource Revenue Management, and
- Macroeconomic Policies.
The ADB team also presented results of their research work in these areas.
ADB Managing Director General Rajat Nag addressed the workshop to share ADB experiences on regional integration from South Asia and the Greater Mekong Subregion.
The workshop established communication between the local research institutes and the respective experts in each field. This will support close coordination throughout the preparation of the research papers.
