Aid-funded business consists of commercial opportunities borne out of assistance programmes by multilateral development banks and organisations. Institutions like the Asian Development Bank (ADB) have a wide development portfolio across Asia-Pacific, generating business opportunities in key sectors and themes.

The UK and the ADB

The UK has a strong record of winning business with the ADB. The UK is among those top-ranked globally in securing ADB consultancy contracts, with known strengths in the Bank’s priority sectors (transport, water and environment, education and skills). In 2018, UK firms have secured a total of £124 million in ADB procurement across said sectors.

Working with the ADB

The UK-ASEAN Business Council, in partnership with British Expertise International (BEI), Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the Department for International Trade (DIT), is organising this ADB Business Opportunities Seminar.

Specialists from the Bank will be presenting an institutional overview of the ADB, its procurement framework and reforms, and updated project pipelines across Asia-Pacific under its sector and thematic assistance programmes.

We will also have specialists from the World Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development presenting their respective pipelines.

All attendees can also seek one-to-one meetings with the specialists after the sessions. To express your interest in 1-2-1 sessions please email: victoria.sibal@fco.gov.uk
