The country operations business plan (COBP), 2014–2016 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) updates the COBP 2013– 2015. The COBP continues to support the priorities identified in the ADB country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012–2016 for the Lao PDR of inclusive and sustainable growth and poverty reduction through four priority sectors (agriculture and natural resources; education; energy; and water supply and sanitation, and other municipal services) and through more effective public sector management as a crosscutting concern. The CPS is aligned with the government’s Seventh Five-Year National Socio-Economic Development Plan, 2011–2015.
