 ADB is updating its energy policy, which is instrumental in guiding the bank’s investment portfolio focus to support DMC development, with a target of finalisation for Board consideration at the end of 2021. This session will provide an opportunity for experts and participants to share views on the opportunities and challenges in the Southeast Asian energy sector and how ADB can respond and support.
