ADB appoints new Cambodia economist

ASIAN Development Bank has appointed economist Peter Brimble as Cambodia’s senior country economist to replace Eric Sidgwick, who held the position for almost three years, an ADB spokesperson told the Post Thursday. Brimble, who will be the ADB’s Cambodia mission second in command after country director Putu Kamayana, is expected to start in the new role on July 1, according to ADB programmes officer Chantha Kim. Brimble was most recently a development consultant to the UNDP and USAID and managing director of currently suspended private equity fund Cambodia Emerald. Eric Sidgwick officially left the Cambodia mission in mid-May after accepting an internal promotion within the ADB, Phnom Penh-based Chantha Kim said. Sidgwick is now the bank’s principle economist for its regional cooperation and integration group based in Manila, a position that was internationally advertised at the beginning of March.
