  1. Background

The African Development Bank (the Bank or AfDB) is a Multilateral Development Bank (MDB) established in 1964 to catalyze sustainable economic development and social progress in its Regional Member Countries (RMCs), thus contributing to poverty reduction. The AfDB Asia External Representation Office (SNAR) is the Bank’s sole representative office outside Africa, opened in Tokyo, Japan, in 2012. The SNAR’s major objectives are to enhance partnerships and dialogue with Asian countries, promote business and investment opportunities in and with Africa, and widely disseminate and exchange information about the Bank, itself, and development issues and projects in Africa. There are currently four Asian member countries, which are China, India, Japan, and Korea.

SNAR emphasizes on partnership building in the business communities between Asia and Africa. For this purpose, SNAR has been continuously organizing business promotion events from small to large size. Information dissemination in terms of African business environment is also an important role that SNAR has been playing. SNAR maintains its web-site in Asian languages for accommodating Asian audiences in order to further promote the Banks strategies in addition to the African development issues in general. As for enhancing partnerships and dialogue with Asian countries, there will be important events in 2018 and 2019. For example, SNAR will host a business seminar in Tokyo in late November 2018, and another seminar in Tokyo early 2019. Japan is hosting G20 in 2019 and related tasks are anticipated. In addition, the SNAR is often invited by external parties as speaker in seminars and conferences taking place in four Asian member countries, receiving more staff members from the HQ, so that support is needed for preparation.
