Japanese Representative Office
In the Spotlight
Statement by ADB President Takehiko Nakao following the conclusion of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change COP21 meeting in Paris
Special economic zones (SEZs) can be a driving force for increased trade, investment, and economic reform in Asia at a time the region is experiencing a slowdown in trade, provided the right business environments and policies are put in place, says a new ADB report.
Asia’s developing economies remain on track to post growth of 5.8% in 2015 and 6.0% in 2016, as the region’s economies remain resilient to continued economic weakness in industrialized countries, says a new ADB report.
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.
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.
