Pacific Liaison and Coordination Office
In the Spotlight
ADB is working in the energy sector in the Pacific region to increase access to clean and reliable energy, a resource that is essential for low-carbon economic growth and improved living conditions.
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.
Pacific Liaison and Coordination Office (PLCO) is ADB's representative office in Sydney, Australia, and also acts as a focal point for New Zealand. It is involved in programming, processing, and administration of assistance in Nauru, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu.
PLCO is also committed to promoting private sector development across all 14 of ADB's Pacific developing member countries via the Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative, which is co-financed by Australian Aid.
