The East Asian Bureau of Economic Research is a forum for high-quality economic research focussing on issues facing the economies of East Asia. It comprises representatives from Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Australia.

The rapid development of the East Asian economies, the growth of intra-regional trade, financial and other economic interaction, and East Asia’s new role in the global economy all underline the need for access to a vastly increased range of quality economic analysis on East Asia. Such analysis from both inside and outside government is essential to assist policymakers in responding to, and anticipating, issues confronting the East Asian economy.

Quality economic analysis is essential to assist policymakers in responding to new issues as they arise. The EABER will provide research support for policymakers, improve links between researchers throughout the region, and create venues where researchers and policymakers can come together to discuss issues vital to economic development in East Asia.

Steering Committee
EABER is guided by a steering committee with expertise in the factors influencing East Asian economies and the region at large.

Programs and Institutes
A number of major programs and institutes of economic research have made a significant contribution to the understanding of economic developments and their implications for policy over the last few decades. The Future Financial Arrangements in East Asia project, and the current Advancing Economic Integration in East Asia project, have contributed to this understanding over the past few years, and have developed links between policymakers and academics in the region.
