Results of ADB-Supported Operations: Malaysia

ADB’s work in Malaysia is centered on applying the organization’s knowledge and experience in regional cooperation and integration.

After 15 years without country-level engagement, an interim country partnership strategy (CPS) for Malaysia was adopted in November 2011. The  country operations business plan, 2013-2014, is consistent with the interim CPS. ADB operations continue to focus on catalyzing nonsovereign investment in key strategic projects that will not only support Malaysia’s policy objectives, but also further propel it toward regional integration and outward orientation.

*Ratings are based on project completion reports (PCRs) issued in 2004-2012. These ratings are updated when project completion report validation and/or project/program performance evaluation reports become available. As the PCR for each project is usually prepared 12-24 months after project completion, the figures may include information from projects completed earlier than 2004.

Teachers trained between 2010-2013: 8,366

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.
