Samoa: Cofinancing

Cofinancing operations enable ADB’s financing partners, governments or their agencies, multilateral financing institutions, and commercial organizations, to participate in financing ADB projects. The additional funds are provided in the form of official loans and grants, technical assistance, other concessional cofinancing, and commercial cofinancing such as B loans, risk transfer arrangements, parallel loans and equity, guarantee cofinancing, and cofinancing for transactions under ADB’s Trade Finance Program.

From 1970 to the end of 2015, cumulative direct value-added official cofinancing for Samoa amounted to $93 million for seven investment projects, and $2.9 million for eight technical assistance projects.

In 2015, Samoa received $25.1 million grant cofinancing from the governments of Australia and New Zealand, the European Commission, and the World Bank.
