India and ADB

In the Spotlight

ADB assistance supports India’s evolving priorities. The country partnership strategy, 2013–2017 for India aims to support the government’s Twelfth Five-Year Plan priorities of “faster, more inclusive, and sustainable growth.” In line with the government’s guiding principle that multilateral development partners add value beyond tangible investments, ADB builds in innovations and best practices in project design and implementation.

The country operations business plan, 2017–2019 reflects a continued finetuning of the ADB program in support of the government’s priority areas and flagship initiatives.

India is a member of the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) program.
