Manila
Philippines

Asia's transport sector will require over $8.4 trillion in investments until 2030 to continue the region’s growth trajectory while responding to the challenges of climate change.

Opportunities exist to close the infrastructure funding gap and direct the financing toward more sustainable, resilient transport infrastructure. The ADB Transport Forum 2018 focuses on the issue of Financing the Future of Transport in Asia and the Pacific and provides a venue to discuss these opportunities and attend to the challenges.
