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.




The main objective of the Government at a Glance series has been to provide reliable, internationally comparable data on government activities and their results in OECD member countries. By broadening the scope to other regions in the world, such as Southeast Asia (SEA), this publication allows countries to benchmark their own governments’ performance within the region and in relation to the OECD. In addition, it allows governments to track both their own and international developments over time and provides evidence to their public policy making. This publication covers the ten Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, as well as the four OECD countries in their proximity – Australia, Japan, Korea and New Zealand.
