The Japanese Representative Office (JRO) serves as the focal point for interaction between ADB and its constituencies in Japan. JRO's main roles are to:
- promote public awareness about ADB and Asian and the Pacific region in Japan
- promote resource mobilization from official and private sectors in Japan for ADB operations
- assist government agencies, NGOs and other constituencies in Japan in liaising with ADB by providing necessary information and increasing interface and coordination.
