Asia Development Bank Seminar on Private Sector Operations

On July 31, RLS associate Jessica Wright attended the Asian Development Bank (“ADB”) seminar on Private Sector Operations. Around 50 people gathered at ADB’s Afghanistan Resident Mission to learn about ADB’s Private Sector Operations Department (“PSOD”), the ADB branch that seeks to identify commercially viable transactions that will generate financial returns for the bank and promote environmentally sustainable and inclusive economic growth in countries like Afghanistan. To this end, ADB provides investment products, technical and advisory services, and asset management. PSOD looks for companies with high demonstrated value and replicability, innovative ways of doing business, and high integrity and ethical standards.
