Meeting with Asia Development Bank Institute (ADBI)

November 25, 2016

On 25 November 2016, as requested by Asia Development Bank Institute (ADBI), Mr. Lim met with Mr. Bokhwan Yu, Deputy Dean of ADBI, in Seoul, Korea, for discussing future cooperation for supporting LDCs to implement the 2030 Agenda. ADBI, the Tokyo-based think tank of the Asian Development Bank which functions similar to the Word Bank Institute, conducts various researches on sustainable development issues such as inclusive and sustainable growth, regional cooperation and integration, and governance for policy and institutions. ADBI is also engaged in activities of strengthening capacity building in Asian developing countries through organising seminars and workshops, particularly in the field of governance. 

Both sides shared same understanding that collaboration could create great synergies, considering similarities of works of both organisations. In this regard, UNPOG and ADBI discussed about co-organising a joint workshop on governance and institutions next year in Seoul, Republic of Korea. Both sides agreed to develop further on this collaboration later in 2017 through follow-up meetings.
