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 align 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.
