Pacific Liaison and Coordination Office
In the Spotlight
Most Pacific economies are unlikely to be significantly affected by heightened uncertainty in the global economy, says ADB's July 2016 issue of the Pacific Economic Monitor.
ADB is supporting projects across the Pacific that boost internet access, bringing education, healthcare, and communications to millions of isolated islanders.
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.
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.
