Vanuatu and ADB

In the Spotlight


The Vanuatu economy has seen steady growth over the past decade—a rarity in the Pacific.

ADB's country partnership strategy, 2010–2014 and its country operations business plan, 2014–2016 aligns with the government's Priorities and Action Agenda 2006–2015. Assistance is focused on transport, by providing support for improved connectivity to markets and social services; urban development, through expanding access to sanitation and drainage facilities and improved urban infrastructure; and energy, by supporting greater energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
