Why Partner with ADB
Partnering with ADB allows donors to participate in the economic and social development of the world’s fastest growing region. With a presence in 49 developing member countries (DMCs) in Asia and the Pacific, ADB’s breadth in operations adds value to programs cofinanced with partners. Founded in 1966, ADB has a deep understanding of the region and its needs, as well as close and tested relationships with its DMCs.
