The Pacific Islands Development Program presents Pacific Opportunities: Leveraging Asia's Growth with Christopher Edmonds, Senior Economist, Pacific Department, Asian Development Bank

How can Pacific island economies, including those of Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste, tap into projected growth in Asia? How can economic and financial integration between Asia and the Pacific be expanded to benefit both regions? This seminar will feature one of the main authors of a recently published Asian Development Bank (ADB)-Asian Development Bank Institute book, Pacific Opportunities: Leveraging Asia's Growth, who explored these issues, identified critical constraints to integration, and suggested relevant policy reforms.

Christopher Edmonds is the Senior Economist in the Pacific Department at ADB, where he looks after much of the department's economics research, including acting as editor-in-chief for the department's Pacific Economic Monitor publication. He is also responsible for managing ADB's work on a number of technical assistance projects in the Pacific Region--including acting as chair of ADB's Impact Evaluation Committee--and joins project teams preparing ADB loan and grant projects. His publications include papers in the Asian Development Review, Agricultural Economics, Journal of Asian Economics, Journal of Sustainable Development, and Journal of Travel Research. See flyer.
