image of Government at a Glance Southeast Asia 2019

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.

General government tax revenues

The capacity to tax citizens is one of government’s core attributes. Revenues collected from taxes represent the most important source of public funds in almost all countries and are crucial to provide public goods and services, guarantee government operations, undertake public investments and, depending on societal choices, embark on a higher or lower degree of income redistribution. As a general trend, in 2015 tax revenues as a share of GDP are around 14% on average in the four SEA countries for which there is data. This is significantly less than in the four OECD countries in the region, where tax revenues range between 25% and 33% of GDP.
