The Asia External Representation (hereinafter referred to as ‘SNAR’) of the African Development Bank (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Bank’) is mandated to promote the Bank’s strategic relationships with its Asian Non-Regional Member Countries, namely Japan, South Korea, China, and India.

The Bank has recently engaged a consulting firm to evaluate the performance of SNAR, since its establishment in Tokyo, Japan in 2012. The purpose of the assignment was to draw lessons from the opening and operations of SNAR in order to (i) chart the way forward on the work of SNAR through producing an independent evaluation of SNAR’s achievements and activities together with concrete recommendations, including possible amendments to the existing SNAR Terms of Reference, and offer advice for possible improvement in structure or organization of SNAR and (ii) avoid any pitfalls in the opening of the other External Representation Offices (EROs) in North America and Europe and also provide recommendations for the establishment of the other EROs in North America and Europe. The final product of this evaluation was presented to the Committee of Operations and Development Effectiveness (hereinafter referred to as “CODE”), which produced recommendations that emphasized the need to strengthen SNAR’s roles to better fulfil its original mandate such as supporting the Bank’s Non-Sovereign Operation, resource mobilization and financial services, engaging more actively in China and India, and improving the communication flow and synergies between SNAR and headquarters.

Based on these recommendations, SNAR shall take responsibility to amend the current work program of SNAR together with amending Key Performance Indicators.
