Devex has released theSummer 2015 edition of the Devex Executive Review, featuring top news stories, recent high-level appointments and key findings from our survey of development professionals on what they see as the profile of next-generation aid workers.
Last week, the New Development Bank, a financing institution created by Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — collectively known as BRICS — had its first board of governors meeting. At the gathering in Moscow, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov announced that NDB will partner with the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank to finance projects in the Silk Road trade route.
The creation of NDB and AIIB reflects the growing footprint of emerging donors such as BRICS in global development. In "Devex Reports: Emerging Donors," we took a close look at the practices and priorities of these donors and featured some of the key findings in the current issue of the DER.
The publication’sSummer 2015 edition also offers insights into the future of development cooperation in Myanmar, which is due to have a national election in November. Read our interview with Andrew M. Lee, who leads the GE's operations in Myanmar, about the risks and rewards of investing the Asian nation.
