Bhutan and ADB

In the Spotlight


ADB has partnered with the Government of Bhutan since 1982, and today it is the country's largest multilateral development partner. ADB has maintained close cooperation with other multilateral and bilateral funding agencies, as well as civil society organizations, to strengthen the effectiveness, quality, and sustainability of assistance. The new resident mission in Bhutan is expected to further enhance aid coordination.

Under the country partnership strategy, 2014-2018, ADB will assist the government in achieving self-reliance and inclusive and green socioeconomic development, as well as enhance cooperation with its neighbors.
