German Companies Attend the Business Opportunities Fair Organised by the ADB in order to Explore their Chances in Tenders

OAV–German Asia-Pacific Business Association – led a delegation to the Business Oppor-tunities Fair (BOF) organised by the ADB from 27 to 28 March with a subsequent visit to Bangladesh.


This was the third mission of this kind, organized together with the EZ Scout Programme, this time in cooperation with the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the German RETech Partnership e.V. and the German Biogas Association (Fach­verband Biogas e.V).

Members of the delegation were twelve representatives of German companies from the in­frastructure sector, their Asian subsidiaries and cooperation partners. The delegation visited the ADB at its headquarters in Manila during the Business Opportunities Fair (BOF) and then its Resident Mission in Dhaka. Many of the companies operate in the biogas sector.

German companies used the first stage of the trip from 26 to 28 March to learn more about their chances in tenders for ADB-funded projects. Medium-sized German companies can promote economic growth and sustainable development in emerging and developing coun­tries and contribute to a robust infrastructure in Asia through their entrepreneurial commit­ment in the planning and implementation of ADB-funded projects, and in doing so contribute to achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs) enshrined in the United Nations 2030 Agenda. This stage of the trip also allowed the delegates to gain first-hand insight into the economic policies and state development programs in the Philippines, which is currently the ADB’s fifth-largest borrower.
