Capital Market Reform in Asia contains a selection of papers that capture the essence of capital market reform in the Asian region, including important lessons from the global financial crisis of 2007–2009. It points to the need for Asian economies to adapt their capital market development strategies to rebalance growth by increasing mobilization of Asian savings for Asian investment.

Capital Market Reform in Asia is derived from 11 round table conferences on Capital Market Reform in Asia, jointly organized by Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
