The 3rd annual Aid & Development Asia Summit attracted 300+ high-profile participants from the government, national and international NGOs, businesses, UN organisations, donors and media. Following the success of the previous Summit held at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, this year’s event zoomed in on current initiatives and latest trends around procurement, technology and innovation in Southeast Asia’s aid and development sector, with a focus on Myanmar.
Over the two days, the Summit participants learned about initiatives and programmes in Southeast Asia, discovered applications of new technologies and established long-lasting partnerships with key stakeholders including government ministers, UN representatives, NGOs and the private sector companies in aid and sustainable development.
