In the Spotlight
Strong relationships with development partners meant ADB operations in 2015 totaled $27.17 billion. ADB’s Donor Report highlights the importance of effective development partnerships in ADB's operations.
At the heart of Asia's growth is a hidden energy driving the continent - from the Himalayas to the world's fastest cities. It's a story shaped by dynamism, innovation, and resilience: Asia is changing beyond recognition. At the Asian Development Bank, we believe in finding a common purpose across the great continent we've helped grow over the past 50 years, so that everyone benefits from economic growth.
Growth is slowing across much of developing Asia as a result of the continued weak recovery in major industrial economies and softer growth prospects for the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
The Japanese Representative Office (JRO) serves as the focal point for interaction between ADB and its constituencies in Japan. JRO's main roles are to:
- promote public awareness about ADB and Asian and the Pacific region in Japan
- promote resource mobilization from official and private sectors in Japan for ADB operations
- assist government agencies, NGOs and other constituencies in Japan in liaising with ADB by providing necessary information and increasing interface and coordination.
