9th ADB Business Opportunities Fair

14 March 2018 to 15 March 2018
Mandaluyong City
Philippines

The ADB Business Opportunities Fair (BOF) is a one-stop forum for consultants, contractors, manufacturers, and suppliers looking to provide goods and services for ADB projects. It has proven to be an excellent opportunity to network not only with peers in the industry, but also with ADB specialists in the agriculture, environment, energy, public management, finance, transport, water, urban development, health, and education sectors.

ADB procurement and regional sector specialists were there to talk about general requirements for doing business with the ADB; applicable ADB policies and procedures for procurement of goods and works; and ongoing and upcoming business opportunities.

The regional sector specialists discussed ADB's loan, technical assistance, and grant pipelines in the agriculture, environment, energy, public management, finance, transport, water, urban development, health, and education sectors as well as in the thematic areas of climate change, public-private partnerships, and private sector operations.
