People's Republic of China (PRC) and ADB

ADB has moved from an infrastructure-based support model for the PRC to one that will improve the quality of economic growth by underlining environmental protection and social sector development.

In the Spotlight

Support for the Yangtze River Economic Belt

Under its Yangtze River Economic Belt (YREB) Framework, ADB will provide around $2 billion over 2018-2020 to support integrated economic and environmental development in the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze River.
