Asian Development Bank (ADB)

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) assists both members and partners through loans, technical assistance, grants, and equity investments in order to foster social and economic development throughout member states. Established in 1966, ADB has grown from 31 members to encompass 68 members today—with 49 members found within Asia/Pacific and 19 members outside the region.

ADB prioritizes the maximum impact of its assistance programs by facilitating open policy dialogues, providing advisory services, and mobilizing financial resources through co-financing operations using government, commercial, and export credit sources. With these support initiatives, ADB’s goals are to eradicate extreme poverty throughout the region and foster resilient, sustainable economic growth and social support for member states.
