The ADFIAP Awards, which is given annually, recognizes member-institutions that have undertaken or assisted projects that have had a positive impact on development in areas such as the environment, small and medium enterprises, infrastructure, technology, trade, local economy, corporate governance, and corporate social responsibility. This will take place on May 16, 2023.
In 1997, ADFIAP organized the “Summit on Development Finance” in Manila which launched the ADFIAP Awards Program. The Summit provided an excellent opportunity to recognize Association members who have made important contributions to their nation’s growth. The Awards Program has remained a permanent “fixture” in the Association since then.
