ADB-Turkmenistan Partnership Strategy

The Country Operations Business Plan, 2018 follows the strategic direction of ADB for its activities in Turkmenistan. These include engagement with the country in the transport, energy, and finance sectors, which show strong potential to achieve inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth and regional integration.

Turkmenistan is a member of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation Program. Thus, infrastructure connectivity and business development will help the country assume a greater role and share in regional trade and expand its economic opportunities.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
