ADB has worked closely with the Government of Sri Lanka since it joined ADB as a founding member in 1966. ADB's country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012-2016, for Sri Lanka, approved in October 2011, was developed in close consultation with the government and other development partners. The CPS is closely aligned with the government’s strategy, Mahinda Chintana, 2010-2016, and ADB’s long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020. It focuses on three pillars: inclusive and sustainable economic growth, catalyzing private investment and enhancing the effectiveness of public investment, and human resource and knowledge development. ADB’s interventions during the CPS period will be strategically focused on transport, energy, education, skills development, and water supply.
