Mr. Konishi will continue to work in harmony with the Government’s agencies and development partners for improved Greater Mekong Subregion cooperation.

In 2000, he was appointed Programs Manager of Programs Department (East) and supported ADB operations in the People’s Republic of China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, and Philippines. From 2002 to present, Mr. Konishi served as Director, Governance, Finance, Trade Division of the Southeast Asia Department.
