ADBI-Stanford University Training Program on Public Policy for Infrastructure
ADBI and the Stanford University Leadership Academy for Development (LAD) hosted 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, addressed challenges faced by public sector leaders as they foster economic growth through infrastructure development in politically charged environments.
The program featured 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 explored how to effectively set priorities, sequence actions, and build coalitions to achieve policy changes, even under adverse domestic conditions.
