The Asian Development Bank (ADB) will hold the second stage of its 53rd annual meeting as a virtual event on September 17–18.

The event will include a formal business session and selected knowledge events, reports BSS.

“As the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve, with travel restrictions impacting many ADB members and continued health risks, ADB and the Government of the Republic of Korea have agreed not to proceed with a physical meeting in Incheon,” said ADB Secretary Eugenue Zhukov.

An ADB press release said the Republic of Korea has offered to host ADB’s 56th Annual Meeting in Incheon in May 2023. ADB’s Board of Governors will consider this proposal when it convenes virtually on September 18.
