KDI and the Foundation will publish a book based on the dialogues including the reflection from this meeting.


The participants included researchers and practitioners from China, South Korea, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos and the Philippines. The participants shared their nations’ foreign-aid strategies and domestic approaches to Pro-Poor Growth.  The strategies to assist Pro-Poor Growth by USAID, AusAID and others including JICA were also introduced, followed by a lively question-and-answer session.
