ADB’s Office of Markets Development and Public-Private Partnerships provides comprehensive public–private partnership support to create markets and mobilize financing to narrow Asia’s infrastructure gap.
Asia’s infrastructure requirements today are estimated at over $1.7 trillion a year until at least 2030. There is a huge gap between the financing that is required and what governments can afford to pay from their own budgets. This shortfall, along with weak capacity, an underdeveloped enabling environment, poor project preparation, and insufficient project financing, are holding back economic growth and poverty alleviation.
ADB’s PPP operations are also supported by the Asia Pacific Project Preparation Facility (AP3F), managed by ADB’s Office of Markets Development and Public–Private Partnership.
The AP3F is a multi-donor trust fund supported by generous contributions from the governments of Australia, Canada, the Republic of Korea, Japan, and ADB. The trust fund helps prepare and monitor PPP projects, build government capacity, and create an enabling environment for PPPs.

The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Monitor series provides detailed information on the PPP landscape in selected countries in Asia and the Pacific. The series has two main aims. One is to provide investors with business intelligence on the enabling environment, policies, priority sectors, and deals to facilitate informed investment decisions. The other is to provide ADB’s developing member countries with a diagnostic tool to identify gaps in their PPP legal, regulatory, and institutional frameworks.
Strategy 2030 sets seven operational priorities, each having its own operational plan. The operational plans contribute to ADB’s vision to achieve prosperity, inclusion, resilience, and sustainability, and are closely aligned with Strategy 2030 principles and approaches.
