Message from the Host


It is my privilege to welcome leaders of Development Banking and finance in Asia- Pacific to our serene and peaceful country for the 42nd ADFIAP annual meeting. At Oman Development Bank, we consider it as a great honor to host this prestigious event in Oman.

The event will unfold with session on Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in infrastructure and logistic development which is extremely relevant to this year’s theme, “DFI’s Role in National Development”, followed by other sessions on Development of Technology and Green Financing.

ADFIAP has been in the forefront of promoting Development Banking across Asia and Pacific region all these years. Also the conference has been a substantial platform for sharing banking knowledge and technical know-how in the development banking sector. The programs have enhanced the learning of the most recent ideas and methods in the Development Banking experiences in various fields. ADFIAP programs have fostered brotherhood among the member countries and we are hopeful that these warm-hearted ties will continue to be strengthened in the days to come. The annual conference is yet another splendid opportunity for all of us to persevere the cause of development banking.

We welcome all of you to Oman! The land of scenic beauty and frankincense awaits you with wonders of nature, such as the Al Hajar mountain range, pristine beaches, historical monuments and archaeological treasures.

Look forward to meeting you

Dr. Abdulaziz Al Hinai
CEO, Oman Development Bank
