The Asian Development Bank Institute was established in 1997 in Tokyo, Japan, to help build capacity, skills, and knowledge related to poverty reduction and other areas that support long-term growth and competitiveness in developing economies in the Asia-Pacific region.
Looking to the future, a key aim for ADBI is to become a leading center for the creation and dissemination of information and knowledge on development in the Asia-Pacific region. We have launched a series of special programs that we plan to expand.
ADBI's new corporate video highlights the innovative work by the institute's dedicated staff that is making a difference in the lives of people in the Asia and Pacific region. Key personnel explain ADBI's development strategies to alleviate poverty in the region.
