Pakistan joined ADB as a founding member in 1966. ADB has since been working with the country to strengthen its key infrastructure, improve social services, and promote inclusive economic growth.
The bank’s country operations business plan, 2020–2022 for Pakistan outlines $7.1 billion in assistance. This includes project loans; policy-based lending for structural reforms; multitranche financing facilities for energy, transport, water, and other urban infrastructure and services; and results-based lending for energy and social services. ADB aims to mobilize private financing for development projects, expand its financing and technical assistance for public–private partnerships, and explore policy-based guarantees to help the Government of Pakistan leverage more financing and develop capital markets.
Since 1966, ADB has committed $33.5 billion in loans, $148.5 million in grants, $190.7 million in technical assistance projects, and $570.4 million in ADB-administered cofinancing for Pakistan.
