ADB Assistance to Developing Asia Tops $21.7 billion in 2011

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved $21.72 billion in financing operations last year, a 14.5 per cent increase on ADB’s previous year’s financing, according to its 2011 Annual Report, released ahead of the organisation’s 45th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors, to be held on May 2-5 in Manila, Philippines.
"Poverty reduction remains the greatest challenge for developing Asia and the Pacific,” ADB President Haruhiko Kuroda said. “Although significant progress has been made in reducing income poverty, large pockets of deprivation remain, and disparities within and across countries continue to grow.”
Nearly 1.8 billion Asians live on less than $2 a day. Low-income countries are struggling to sustain economic growth and reduce poverty, and a substantial proportion of the region’s poor today live in middle-income countries.
To make the process of economic expansion more conducive to reducing poverty, ADB focuses on three primary strategic agendas: inclusive growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration. ADB supports its developing member countries in pursuing these strategies with all the instruments at its disposal – from project finance and technical assistance to knowledge products and policy dialogue.
Of the financing total, $14.02 billion came from ADB’s ordinary capital resources and Special Funds, and $7.69 billion from cofinancing partners. Official cofinancing increased by 13.2 per cent to $3.5 billion, while commercial cofinancing grew sharply from $2.3 billion in 2010 to $4.2 billion in 2011.

Most of these senior citizens are not comfortable with the use of internet or are incapable of visiting the State Comptrollers office and thus for them newspaper listings does
the job. E-papers are able to take advantage of story, sacrificing
other, decidedly less important stories and
giving as much detail about breaking news as possible.

That may be, the temperature that is certainly most effective for catching fish.

Newspaper companies should be seeking to have subscribers to their service where breaking news can
be emailed and send to blackberries and cell-phones. But I
