Private Sector

ADB has supported many private sector projects in its developing member countries since 1983. Currently, ADB's private sector operations focus primarily on two major sectors:

  • Infrastructure: power (e.g. generation, transmission and distribution, including a particular focus on renewable power), transportation (e.g. roads, ports, railways, airports), water supply and waste treatment, oil and gas infrastructure, and telecommunications
  • Capital Markets: financial institutions and investment funds

The areas with ADB-financed private sector projects in the Philippines include:

  • Credit guarantees
  • Credit information bureau
  • Development banks
  • Expressway rehabilitation and expansion
  • Housing finance
  • Mutual fund
  • Nonperforming loan resolution/acquisition
  • SME financing
  • Thermal power generation facilities
  • Venture capital companies
