About Us

The 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’s responsibilities include:

  • promoting private sector development across all 14 of ADB's Pacific developing member countries
  • hosting joint activities and holding consultations with academic and research institutions, and civil society
  • coordinating and hosting high-level visits from ADB Headquarters to Australia, New Zealand, and countries of responsibility
