Asian Development Bank Business Opportunities: COVID-19 Virtual Event


About this webinar

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has annually organised a Business Opportunities Fair in Manila as a forum for consultants, contractors, manufacturers, suppliers, and civil society organizations interested in providing goods, works, consulting and non-consulting services for ADB projects.

Due to disruptions caused by COVID-19 and travel restrictions, organising in-person events became unfeasible. With the aim to continue ADB engagement, the ADB is organising this virtual event to reach out to prospective stakeholders and partners.
