The main objective of the government's Tenth Five Year Plan (2008-2013) is poverty reduction with an aim to reduce the poverty rate to less than 15% by 2013. The government also aims to achieve an average annual GDP growth rate of 9% during the plan period. Closely aligned with the Tenth Five Year Plan, the overarching goal of ADB's forthcoming interim Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) 2012-2013 for Bhutan will be poverty reduction through economic diversification, which has been adopted from the previous CPS 2006-2010. In order to sustain a high economic growth in a dynamic macroeconomic context, there is a growing need for strengthening the capacity of the government to guide, monitor, and evaluate the development process, identify the need for remedial measures, and take responsive actions to address the issues as noted in Bhutan Vision 2020.
