2018 Global Infrastructure Forum: Session Briefs

This 2018 forum was hosted by ADB and held in the Laguna Villas in Bali, Indonesia on October 13, 2018.

The 2018 Global Infrastructure Forum (GI Forum), the third since its establishment as part of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Sustainable Development Goals in 2015, built on the previous forums. Its goal is to bridge the infrastructure gap by improving alignment and coordination among multilateral development banks and their partners to facilitate implementation of sustainable, accessible, and resilient infrastructure for developing countries.

Under the 2018 GI Forum’s overarching theme, “Unlocking Inclusive, Resilient, and Sustainable Technology-Driven Infrastructure”, the opening session discussions set the stage for four sessions chaired by the multilateral development banks and the United Nations, organized in collaboration with public and private sector partners.

For this global event, heads of multilateral development banks and the United Nations, high-level government officials and business leaders participated as panelists in the opening session. A global audience from the public and private sector attended.
