I am Muhammad Ehsan Khan, The Secretary of the Asian Development Bank.  I invite you to join us at the 54th ADB Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors on 3 to 5 May.  

This year, once again due to the global pandemic, we are compelled to have our annual meeting virtually. We are still thankful to be able to connect - as a community - with government officials, development partners, academe, private sector, civil society, and the media, and discuss ADB’s efforts and commitments in tackling regional challenges and developing sustainable solutions.

Our theme “Collaboration for Resilient and Green Recovery,” is timely and relevant as the leaders in the region and around the world are starting to look beyond the Covid19 pandemic and are considering policies and plans to revive the economies. Post Covid-19 recovery – offers us unique opportunities to move to a resilient and sustainable green future, and ADB is fully committed to supporting Asia and the Pacific region toward this goal. With us working together, in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation, we will be able to surmount the challenges ahead.

Webinars and online seminars, at our Annual Meeting this year, will focus on a range of relevant topics, such as policies for economic recovery, inclusion and gender, resilience, climate change and greening of the economies, regional collaboration, boosting private sector role, and domestic resource mobilization and international tax cooperation.   

Come, join us this May. Visit our website at to register and view our full program.

Keep safe and see you all virtually.
