Japanese Representative Office
In the Spotlight
Yields on bonds in emerging East Asian markets have declined in recent months as concerns about a US Federal Reserve rate hike eased and inflationary pressures remained largely muted, ADB’s latest Asia Bond Monitor said.
ADB and the Government of Japan have agreed a $16 billion partnership over the next 5 years to boost private and public infrastructure throughout Asia and the Pacific.
Improving the quality of education can substantially increase growth prospects for developing Asian countries, says latest ADB flagship report.
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.
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.
