Results of ADB-supported Operations: Armenia

Since Armenia became a member of ADB in 2005, ADB's operations in the country have focused on infrastructure, particularly roads and water supply, and financing small and medium-sized enterprises.

ADB’s updated country operations business plan (2012–2013) for Armenia continues to support the government's development priorities including regional cooperation, private sector development, and infrastructure.

This country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Armenia and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

Sector/Output Outputs Delivered
Transport
National highways and provincial, district, and rural roads built or upgraded (kilometers) 263
Beneficiaries from road projects (number) 171,180

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.

The Yerevan–Gyumri highway is part of the North–South Road Corridor. The ADB-supported North-South Road Corridor Investment Program is designed to improve the Agarak-Kapan-Yerevan-Bavra road that crosses Armenia from south to north. This key economic artery links up with Georgia's east-west highway that leads to Poti and Batumi on the Black Sea. This route provides Armenia with the shortest access to the seaports linked to Europe, the Russian Federation, and Turkey.
