Executive Summary

This paper explores the progress of financial integration in Asia by comparison with the EU. In the process of development the Asian countries have focused more on access to the main markets of the world than to each other. Only more recently after the experience of unwelcome contagion in the crises of 1997-8 has there been a concerted effort to develop instruments to promote greater financial stability in the face of external shocks. Many initiatives are currently underway to improve regional financial integration and there is a movement to achieve monetary integration. However, the region is very heterogenous and inequalities in size and development will make full integration difficult.
