Asian Development Bank and Luxembourg: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | June 2008
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides information on Luxembourg's contributions to ADB in terms of capital subscription and funding, the country’s delegates to ADB, and the involvement of Luxembourg companies and consultants in ADB projects. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is dedicated to reducing poverty in the Asia and Pacific region through pro-poor sustainable economic growth, social development, and good governance. Established in 1966, it is owned by 67 member nations—48 from the region—who have committed $133.30 billion to the vision of a region free of poverty. Despite many successes, the region is still home to two thirds of the world’s poor: nearly 1.9 billion people who live on $2 a day or less, with 620 million struggling on less than $1 a day.
