Meeting Asia’s Infrastructure needs


In 2009, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the ADB Institute projected infrastructure needs for developing Asia from 2010 to 2020 in Infrastructure for a Seamless Asia (Seamless Asia). The study covered 32 of ADB’s 45 developing member countries (DMCs) and four sectors: transport, power, telecommunications, and water supply and sanitation. It projected that total investment needs for the four infrastructure sectors would be slightly above $8 trillion (in 2008 prices) over the 11-year period, or almost $750 billion a year.
