Financing partnerships enable ADB’s financing partner governments or their agencies, multilateral financing institutions, and private organizations to participate in financing ADB projects. The additional funds provided may be in the form of loans and grants, technical assistance, and nonsovereign cofinancing.
Cumulative cofinancing commitments in the PRC:
In 2022, the PRC received $100 million loan cofinancing from the Green Climate Fund for the Shandong Green Development Fund – Additional Financing.
Under the country partnership strategy, 2021–2025, ADB is committed to fostering a more focused and multifaceted partnership with the PRC to enable the country to increasingly replicate successful development outcomes and innovative models, and share learning and experience. The evolution of the partnership requires ADB’s operations to be more selective and catalytic, focusing on innovative and demonstrative projects in specific areas of engagement where ADB can add value. Coordination between sovereign and nonsovereign operations and the “One ADB” approach will help scale up ADB support in financing, sector knowledge, and cutting-edge technology; catalyze private capital; and enhance efficiency in operations.

The Forum aims to discuss the key challenges to the region’s macro-financial stability and outlook and present solutions and initiatives in fostering new areas of growth.
No country can fight climate change alone. The countries of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) program should take coordinated action to combat the increasing impacts of climate change and find sustainable solutions.
The ability of the economies of the Caucasus and Central Asia to effectively respond to external shocks critically depends on their cooperation in diversifying trade and transport routes. The right policies and development of the Middle Corridor is a key to success.
Population aging can turn the demographic dividend into a drag on economic growth. New research indicates automation can lessen the effects of unfavorable demographic change on labor productivity.
