Abstract

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the last session of the day, Session 4, a panel discussion of Finance to Ensure Asia’s Economic Growth. My name is Masahiro Kawai, I am the Dean of the Asian Development Bank Institute, so I think we are going to focus on finance and growth and investment. As you know, in Asia there is a huge potential demand for investment. In particular infrastructure investment needs are huge. The ADB and ADBI estimated that over the next 10 years, Asia would have to invest at least US$ 750 billion per year for infrastructure investment only.
