ADB approved the Maldives interim country partnership strategy, 2012-2013, in December 2011. It focuses on developing small and medium-sized enterprises, and the energy and transport sectors, and on key thematic priorities of private sector development and capacity development for policy reform and project implementation. The interim CPS also supports interventions in human resource development for key government agencies.
An interim CPS for 2014 will extend the validity of the current interim CPS for 2012-2013. The next full CPS will be for the period 2015-2019.
ADB’s latest country operations business plan (COBP) for the Maldives identifies lending and nonlending programs for 2014-2016.
