This Business Opportunities Seminar brings together key stakeholders from within the ADB to help Swedish companies understand how to find and participate in opportunities within the Bank's project pipeline across key focused sectors: transport, energy and specific projects in the Private Sector Operations Department (PSOD).
During the seminar, the ADB will provide practical insights on:
- Upcoming business opportunities in transport, energy and infrastructure from ADB's regional departments
- Navigate ADB's policies and procedures for the procurement of goods and works, recruitment of consultants, and engagement of civil society and non-government organizations

This event is part of Team Sweden's engagement with Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), where we support Swedish companies to maximize the opportunities available to participate in large development projects across the world. ADB is one of the biggest lenders and financier of multi-billion infrastructure projects in the APAC region.
