With the 50th anniversary of ADB as a backdrop, this event will examine how the bank is adapting to the dramatic changes in Asia, and what its role in the region should be in the years ahead. Does ADB financing still matter in a region that is seemingly awash in capital? How do the bank's leading shareholders like the United States and Japan see the institution's role going forward? Are new institutions like the AIIB partners or rivals, and how are they causing the ADB to adapt?
