The Asian Development Bank has opened a development co-ordination office in the Cook Islands.

The Bank's vice president, Stephen Groff, says the new office will support the Bank's responsiveness to the development needs of the Cook Islands.

He says the ADB will continue projects already underway in areas such as infrastructure planning and services, renewable energy and energy policy, public financial management and public sector reform.
