Since partnering with the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) in 1990, ADB has approved 14 loans for $92.63 million, 48 technical assistance projects for $21.11 million, and 3 grants for $2.06 million. ADB loans have supported development of the education, fisheries, health, water, and transport sectors; and assisted public sector reform and structural adjustment. Technical assistance projects have also covered a wide range of sectors and issues such as capacity building in development banking, tourism management, environmental protection, and the formulation of economic policy. An ADB-supported program has also helped privatize state-owned enterprises, develop the private sector, and reform the civil service.
