Government at a Glance Southeast Asia 2019 is the first edition in the Government at a Glance series for the region. It provides the latest available data on public administrations in the 10 ASEAN member countries: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam. This publication includes indicators on public finance and economics, public employment, budget practices and procedures, strategic human resources management, digital government, open government and citizen satisfaction with public services. Where possible, these data were compared against the OECD average and that of the neighbouring OECD member countries, such as Australia, Korea, Japan and New Zealand.

Each indicator in the publication is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of graphs and/or charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.


Towards a citizen-centric civil service

This Southeast Asian (SEA) edition of Government at a Glance collects new data on public sector management in the ten countries that make up the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a regional grouping that promotes inclusive and innovation-led economic growth among its ten members. They are Brunei Darussalam; Cambodia; Indonesia; Lao PDR; Malaysia; Myanmar; the Philippines; Singapore; Thailand and Viet Nam. Comparisons to four OECD countries in the neighbourhood (Australia, Japan, Korea and New Zealand), as well as to the SEA and OECD averages, offer policy makers new evidence to improve decision making and provide better public services. The data in this publication have been collected to better understand the current governance situation in SEA countries, as well as to underpin learning from each other and from OECD countries.
