The Asian Development Bank report Supporting Quality Infrastructure in Developing Asia emphasizes the importance of the Group of 20 (G20) Principles for Quality Infrastructure Investment for sustainable development and recovery. However, quality infrastructure growth is a complex process that requires the application of such principles in project design, planning, construction, operations, and management.
