ADB-Georgia Partnership Strategy

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2015-2017 for Georgia is consistent with the draft country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2018; the findings from the midterm review of ADB's Strategy 2020; and the Socio-economic Development Strategy of Georgia (Georgia 2020).

ADB operations in Georgia began in December 2008. An interim operational strategy has been guiding ADB's investments in the country until a new CPS is launched. The draft CPS for 2014-2018 is in the final stages of preparation with consideration by the ADB Board of Directors expected in the first quarter of 2015.

The strategic thrust of the COBP is consistent with the priorities of the draft CPS. The plan will support the government in the following areas:

  • improve internal and regional market connectivity to enhance private sector competitiveness and broaden community access to economic opportunities;
  • make essential drinking water, sewerage, and sanitation services more accessible and reliable, particularly in smaller towns and secondary cities that are potential hubs for agribusiness and tourism;
  • improve the security and stability of power systems, especially for communities in lagging regions;
  • strengthen public sector management for domestic resource mobilization and investment in business and infrastructure; and
  • increase access to finance and promote financial inclusion, particularly for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises.
