Asian Development Bank | June 2008
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides information on United Kingdom's contributions to ADB in terms of capital subscription and funding, the country’s delegates to ADB, and the involvement of companies and consultants from the United Kingdom in ADB projects. Despite many successes, the region is still home to two thirds of the world’s poor: 1.9 billion people who live on $2 a day or less, with 620 million struggling on less than $1 a day. The United Kingdom is the 14th largest shareholder. It has contributed $1.14 billion in capital subscription and $1.23 billion to special funds since joining in 1966.
