Description

The government and the people of Solomon Islands have been working with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) since 1973. The relationship has included 16 loans, six Asian Development Fund grants, 65 technical assistance projects, ongoing policy dialogue, and the development of specific knowledge products. Solomon Islands have achieved important development gains through ADB’s support. In transport, they have focused on restoring infrastructure; improving maintenance; increasing safety, quality, and reliability; and promoting private sector participation. ADB’s private sector reform activities have helped implement state-owned enterprise reforms and improve the environment for doing business.
