On September 20-21, 2017, in the city of Colombo (Sri Lanka), the 5th Asian Think Tank Development Forum took place, in which the representatives of Center for Economic Research (CER) take part annually.

The event was organized by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Institute for Political Studies of Sri Lanka.

The forum brought together representatives of more than 25 countries under the theme "Financing Sustainable Urbanization in the Asia-Pacific Region". Uzbekistan was represented by the director of the Center for Economic Research, Sharofiddin Nazarov.

The focus of the two-day event was on the financial aspect of sustainable urbanization. During the forum, it was noted that the financing of major investment projects is a key challenge faced by most developing countries in Asia and the Pacific. The importance of finding effective financing mechanisms and using more reasonable resources for sustainable urbanization was underlined.

The objectives of this event were to deepen the exchange of knowledge between the "think tanks" of the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the development of appropriate policy recommendations for sustainable urbanization.
