Policy advocacy

ADB acts as a facilitator in trade and investment policy dialogue at regional and subregional forums and supports capacity building. In 2007, it played a leading role in the WTO’s Aid-for-Trade Initiative in the Asia and Pacific Region.

ADB also supports various regional policy forums, such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the People’s Republic of China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea (ASEAN+3), the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Asia-Europe Meeting, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), and the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC).
