Japanese Representative Office
In the Spotlight
Softer growth prospects for the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and India, and a slow recovery in the major industrial economies, will combine to push growth in developing Asia for 2015 and 2016 below previous projections, says a new ADB report.
Regional economic integration and the financial crisis in Europe are very different from what is taking place in Asia, says ADB expert.
The governments of Japan, Canada and Australia are providing a total of $64 million for an ADB facility to help developing Asia and the Pacific prepare, structure, and place public-private partnership (PPP) projects in the market.
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.
