A new interim country partnership strategy (CPS) will set the framework and parameters for ADB lending to Turkmenistan. It will accentuate operational priorities in areas where ADB is comparatively strong - especially infrastructure development toward regional integration.
The first country operations business plan (COBP) has been formulated for 2014-2015 in conjunction with the draft interim CPS for Turkmenistan.
The draft interim CPS 2014-2015 has identified two priority areas of operations: the development of transport and energy infrastructure toward enhancing regional cooperation and integration, and support for Turkmenistan's further engagement with the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program.
COBP 2014-2015 incorporates operations in the transport and energy sectors, as well as support for reform efforts and knowledge products through policy and advisory, and capacity development technical assistance projects.
