ADB Annual Report 2016

Institutional Document | April 2017

ADB operations in 2016 exceeded the $30 billion mark for the first time as regional demand for development finance and knowledge continues to grow.

The 2016 Annual Report reviews the significant economic transformation in Asia and the Pacific over the past 50 years, and the role played by ADB to support the region’s development to improve people’s lives. The report notes that while the region’s economic growth and success in reducing poverty have exceeded the most optimistic forecasts, there remain significant challenges to be addressed.

"The region’s economic growth and success in reducing poverty have exceeded even the most optimistic forecasts. But we cannot be complacent. The fact remains that there are still 330 million people living in absolute poverty across Asia and the Pacific."

Takehiko Nakao, ADB President

The annual report provides a complete picture of ADB’s performance in the reporting year through the use of infographics, stunning images, and compelling stories of development from across Asia and the Pacific. The report includes ADB’s complete financial statements, and operational data in PDF and Excel formats.
