NSI hosts Asian Development Bank (ADB) delegation

Apr 17 2012

A delegation led by the ADB’s Chief Economist, Dr. Changyong Rhee, recently visited NSI to discuss recent research initiatives and areas of potential collaboration between the two organizations. In particular, the ADB explained its ongoing program on ‘growth diagnostics’ country case studies in Asia in exploring the possibility of involving NSI and its partners from the Southeast Asia region in this work. The officials also outlined ADB’s research agenda on re-thinking development and industrialization policy processes, which they said is attracting significant attention from policy-makers from the Asia region. The event took place April 17, 2012.
