from the Chair
Dear fellow-members, development partners, friends:
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Secretariat of the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP), I wish to invite you and those in the development finance community to join us at the 44th ADFIAP Annual Meeting to be done hybrid on October 27-28, 2021 hosted by the Philippine members.
We are living through a difficult time for society and our economies. The crisis around the COVID-19 pandemic has left no one untouched. The virus is not only claiming human lives but also subjecting individual countries and the global political order to extraordinary stress rarely seen in ordinary time. But these challenges only reinforce our determination to continue working towards one goal – making the world more resilient.
