Plenary session 1: Multilateral Development Bank's Role in Catalysing Infrastructure Development in Asia
This panel will bring together senior representatives from the World Bank Group, the Asian Development Bank and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank together in a strategic dialogue. With Asia’s growing infrastructure needs, the speakers will discuss the role of multilateral development banks in preparing and financing projects in the region. What are the gaps in infrastructure project development that the multilateral development banks have identified in the region? Where does each bank see their role and niche in infrastructure project development? What are some of the initiatives they have embarked on to work together with the private sector?
Plenary session 2: The Developers’ Perspective on Infrastructure Projects in Asia
The State has traditionally been the main developer, owner and provider of infrastructure services in the region, but private sector participation in infrastructure development is increasing. Hear top developers in Asia share their views and experiences. How have they managed to bring projects into reality? Where do they see opportunities going forward?

Investors' Considerations in Infrastructure Investments
Projects need to be bankable in order to harness private sector financing. What are funds and financiers major concerns for entering the infrastructure sector? Is there room for innovation to shape the future of infrastructure financing? How can governments better support in order to get more projects off the ground?
Developing PPP projects in Asia
The ADB estimates that the total infrastructure investment needs of Asia is about US$8 trillion between 2010 and 2020. This infrastructure gap cannot be delivered by public sector finances alone, thus private sector participation in the form of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) is increasingly important. This session will provide an insight on PPPs in the region - how they are structured and the project opportunities - leveraging the experiences of the ADB's Office of Public-Private Partnership (OPPP), the Asia Infrastructure Centre of Excellence (AICOE) and Surbana Jurong.
