By working with the clients, I learned how to understand and match their needs with what ADB can do as a lending agency. At the same time, I'm learning a lot from my colleagues. So it helps me grow everyday as a development professional.
Because of the passion and motivation that inspire me to work with ADB, I derive a lot of satisfaction from my job. I really believe in the overall objective of ADB of poverty reduction and improvement of lives of people in Asia.
ADB offered an opportunity for me to do my work within a more structured environment than being on my own as a consultant based in New Zealand and it also offered me the opportunity to do more operations work.
I’m making my dreams come true at ADB. When I joined ADB there were no private sector clean energy projects in the PRC. Over the past 6 years, thanks to strong support from the management and team, we built a wide variety of green projects in the PRC.
ADB is unique in being a multilateral development bank that hosts public and private sector operations under the same roof.
If you have innovative ideas and knowledge that can improve the lives of many and you want to work at a place where knowledge and ideas matter, then you must join ADB.
When the opportunity arose to work for the Asian Development Bank in 2004, I embraced it as it provided me with an opportunity to marry my personal interests with a compelling mission and cause.
