ADB Business Outreach Activities
ADB’s business opportunities outreach activities aim to build the interest and capacity of consultants, contractors, nongovernment organizations, and civil society organizations in pursuing ADB’s business opportunities and in understanding its procurement and anticorruption procedures. These outreach activities benefit ADB-financed projects in its developing member countries by enhancing competition for ADB-financed contracts and partnerships, thereby promoting higher-quality market offers that deliver optimal value for money.
ADB’s business opportunities outreach activities include:
- a regular Business Opportunities Fair, held at ADB Headquarters;
- periodic Regional Business Opportunities Seminars, held in regional hubs; and
- an ongoing series of Business Opportunities Seminars held upon request either virtually or in person and led by a local host organization such as a chamber of commerce or government agency.
ADB’s support to these activities is funded predominantly through dedicated technical assistance.
