Speaker(s): Rajat M Nag
Recorded on 22 October 2012 in Old Theatre, Old Building.
If Asia is to achieve its full potential, it will have to be through sustainable growth. To have sustainable growth, Asia must have growth that is inclusive, and growth that is green. These are not, nor should they be, separate processes, but rather simultaneous processes that focus on the quality of growth rather than simply on the quantity of growth. It is imperative for all partners in the region - governments, private sector, civil society and development institutions - to work together to build prosperous, inclusive societies.
Rajat Nag has held several senior positions in the Asian Development Bank (ABD) over the past two decades and, as managing director general since December 2006, has provided strategic and operational direction to ADB in its fight against poverty.
