Private Sector (Nonsovereign) Financing
In the Spotlight
It is now easier to register a business in many Pacific island countries following a successful pilot program in the Solomon Islands.
Michael Barrow, Deputy Director General of ADB's Private Sector Operations Department, writes in an op-ed about how MDBs like ADB remain relevant and sought after as core financiers of private infrastructure projects in Asia.
ADB has raised Rs3 billion (about $50 million) from its maiden issuance of its $500 million offshore rupee-linked bond program, which aims to deepen India’s capital markets.
As a catalyst for private investments, ADB provides direct financial assistance to private sector projects. While ADB’s participation is usually limited, it leverages a large amount of funds from commercial sources to finance these projects. Projects must also have clear development impacts and/or demonstration effects that go beyond the benefits captured in the financial rate of return.
