Malaysia and ADB

In the Spotlight


Malaysia is a middle-income country with a record of strong economic performance and poverty reduction. It has largely achieved its Millennium Development Goals for income, poverty, primary education, gender, and health well ahead of the 2015 target.

ADB aims to establish a role consistent with Malaysia’s middle-income status and development programs, combining nonsovereign operations and reimbursable technical assistance modalities to support the country's efforts toward a business-friendly environment.
