ADB-Malaysia Partnership Strategy

After a lull of approximately 15 years without a country-level engagement, an interim country partnership strategy (CPS), 2011-2012 for Malaysia was adopted in November 2011.

The interim CPS set forth ADB's re-engagement with Malaysia and reflected ADB's commitment to the realization of the Tenth Malaysia Plan (TMP). It supported Malaysia on the national anchoring of regional cooperation and integration efforts, catalyzing private investments by developing bankable public-private partnerships, and highlighting knowledge partnerships.

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2013-2014 is consistent with the interim CPS. The COBP continues 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. 

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
