ADB-Pakistan Partnership Strategy

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2014-2016, for Pakistan was approved in February 2014. It was based on the strategic focus of the country partnership strategy (CPS), 2009-2013, and anticipated strategic thrust of the CPS 2015-2019 scheduled for ADB Board of Directors' consideration in the first quarter of 2015.

The interim CPS 2014-2015 supplements the COBP 2014-2016, extending the validity of CPS 2009-2013 until the endorsement of CPS 2015-2019. The strategic thrusts of CPS 2009-2013 are in line with the new government’s priorities. The government approved its long-term strategy, Vision 2025, on 29 May 2014 and is finalizing the medium-term development plan for 2014-2018. Finalization of the new CPS was rescheduled to synchronize with that of the government’s development plan.

During the interim CPS period, ADB assistance will continue to focus on six sectors:

  • energy;
  • transport;
  • agriculture, natural resources, and rural development;
  • water and other urban infrastructure and services;
  • finance; and
  • public sector management.
