President's Leadership Council
Understanding that private sector perspectives can be critical to good project design, the Foundation's leadership established The Asia Foundation's President's Leadership Council. Consisting of highly-regarded private sector leaders with expertise or strategic interests in Asia, its primary role is to help increase the visibility and relevance of the Foundation's work, and to help better assess the impact of Foundation programming on the economic growth and development of Asian nations. The Council also responds to specific policy issues as needs arise.
