Assessment of the Implementation of the Public Communications Policy (September 2005-August 2006)

Institutional Document | March 2007

ADB public communications policy annual report for September 2005 August 2006 with statistics on disclosure compliance by document type.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) envisages that through enhanced communications, it can build strong and productive partnerships with key constituencies, deepening development impact. To build strong partnerships, ADB must be respected and trusted as a professional, open, and transparent development institution. To achieve this goal, ADB approved in April 2005 the public communications policy (PCP). The PCP encompasses two separate but complementary components: effective external relations and disclosure of information. The PCP became effective on 1 September 2005. This first report covers the period from September 2005 to August 2006.
