Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the bank's website, "The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) is a corporate priority TA that will support developing member countries (DMCs) to enhance collaboration and knowledge sharing on domestic resource mobilization (DRM) and international tax cooperation (ITC), in partnership with other development partners (DPs), and strengthen the establishment and implementation of differentiated, country-specific roadmaps on DRM and ITC. This will be achieved through the establishment of an effective and inclusive regional hub on DRM and ITC, where all DMCs and DPs collaborate closely to promote DRM and ITC in Asia and the Pacific region. The TA's key outputs are to establish a regional hub secretariat function in the Asian Development Bank (ADB), promote strategic dialogues and information sharing among DMCs, DPs and ADB including by organizing high-level regional conferences, develop the web portal for the regional hub, and drive digital solutions on DRM and ITC. The secretariat -- initially to operate virtually -- will promote a One ADB approach to maximize internal resources and cost effectiveness through close communication with relevant departments. The TA builds on the initial accomplishments of the TA for Enhancing Tax Transparency of ADB Developing Member Countries (TA 9433)."
