ADB's new country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012-2016, for the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) is anchored on the country's Seventh National Socio-Economic Development Plan, 2011-2015. The strategic focus of the CPS is shaped by the country's specific requirements and capabilities. It is designed to help the government diversify the economy in a sustainable inclusive manner through agriculture and natural resources, education, energy, urban development, and public sector management.

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2014-2016, for the Lao PDR supports inclusive and sustainable growth and poverty reduction through four priority sectors (agriculture and natural resources; education; energy; and water supply and sanitation and other municipal services) and through more effective public sector management as a crosscutting concern.
