Background on the The Asian Development Bank (ADB)

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) was created in 1996 to improve the living standards of its 67 member countries. By wisely targeting investments such as loans, grants, and expertise to countries such as India, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, and others spanning the Pacific Islands and Central Asia, the ADB is able to help create a world in which everyone can share in the benefits of sustained and inclusive growth.
