ADBI-Stanford University Training Program on Public Policy for Infrastructure
Online, 11:00–15:30 Tokyo time
ADBI and the Stanford University Leadership Academy for Development (LAD) will host a 3-day training program exclusively for government officials from developing Asia and the Pacific on role of public policy in infrastructure development. This course-based training program, led by Professor Francis Fukuyama and faculty at LAD, will address challenges faced by public sector leaders as they foster economic growth through infrastructure development in politically charged environments.
The program will feature case studies and group exercises on providing public goods, bypassing bureaucratic obstacles, facilitating investment, and the state as an economic catalyst. Through interactive lectures, the program will explore how to effectively set priorities, sequence actions, and build coalitions to achieve policy changes, even under adverse domestic conditions.
- Help government officials from developing countries in Asia and the Pacific develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and leadership skills essential for designing and implementing policy reforms that facilitate private investment in infrastructure projects
- Provide lessons that empower participating government officials from the region to advance infrastructure investment-friendly reforms under unfavorable economic, financial, political, and cultural conditions
