The Asian Development Bank's flagship economic publication Asian Development Outlook (ADO) provides a comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic issues in developing Asia. It is launched annually in April and updated in September. The ADO Update examines the prospects for developing Asia by subregion: Central Asia, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific. The report also presents full analysis of ten economies, including the People’s Republic of China and India.

This year's ADO Update theme chapter, Sustaining Development Through Public-Private Partnerships, explores how Asia can use public-private partnerships (PPPs) to bolster infrastructure investment.

The ADO presentation by ADB Chief Economist Yasuyuki Sawada will address:

Economic prospects for developing Asia and the Pacific
Key risks to the region's outlook
Implications of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet normalization for Asia
What is behind the recent uptick in trade and whether it can be sustained
Measures governments can take to promote PPPs and ensure their success
