The European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) have the pleasure to invite you to a roundtable discussion on 3 October 2018 to discuss ADB’s corporate Strategy 2030. The new strategy, approved in July 2018, sets out the bank’s vision and strategic response to the evolving needs of Asia and the Pacific.

Asia and the Pacific has made great progress over the last half century in poverty reduction and economic growth, but there are unfinished development agendas,” said ADB President Mr. Takehiko Nakao. “Under Strategy 2030, we will combine finance, knowledge, and partnerships to sustain our efforts to eradicate extreme poverty and expand our vision towards a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable region.”

ADB’s aspirations are aligned with major global commitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals, the Financing for Development agenda, the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. Given the size of Asia and the Pacific, achieving such commitments will depend critically on the region’s success.

Mr Tomoyuki Kimura, Director General, Strategy, Policy and Review Department, at Asian Development Bank, will present the ADB’s vision of its future, the challenges and opportunities it has identified, its specific offer and the impact it hopes to achieve in Asia and the Pacific, followed by Q&A with the audience.
