Aid & Development Asia Summit

The Objective

The 4th annual Aid & Development Asia Summit will take place on 20-21 June 2017 at the Myanmar International Convention Centre (MICC2) in Nay Pyi Taw, the capital city of Myanmar. 

Gathering over 250 senior representatives and advisors from regional governments, UN agencies, international and regional NGOs, development banks, donors, military, research institutes and the private sector, the Summit looks at how technological innovations and best practice can improve aid delivery and development strategy in Asia, with a particular focus on Myanmar. 

The Aid & Development Asia Summit 2017 is an exclusive platform uniting regional and global expertise, offering an unparalleled opportunity for knowledge exchange, cross-sector engagement and collaboration. 


Why Myanmar?

Following the success of previous summits on innovations and partnerships in humanitarian aid and development in South East Asia held at the UN Conference Centre in Bangkok, the AIDF audience has stated interest in moving the event to Myanmar in 2017. 

Myanmar is the largest country in mainland Southeast Asia and is undergoing a profound transformation, emerging from more than 50 years of military rule, centralized control, and internal conflict. Multilateral and bilateral development agencies, UN and international NGOs are increasingly active in Myanmar, working in humanitarian response and longer-term development in a multitude of sectors, including the environment, health, education, livelihoods, advocacy, and civil society capacity building. McKinsey forecasts that the economy could more than quadruple to reach $200bn by 2030.
