Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday met Asian Development Bank's new Vice-President (market solutions) Bhargav Dasgupta and discussed ways to further the development agenda.

"Both exchanged views on how @ADB_HQ may partner with India to further the development agenda. They also discussed harnessing ADB’s convening power to crowd in other public and private sector institutions to participate in India’s growth," the finance ministry said in a post on X.

ADB in September 2023, appointed Dasgupta as VP for a period of three years. Prior to this, he was MD and CEO of ICICI Lombard General Insurance.
