Armenia: Country Operations Business Plan (2018–2020)

Institutional Document | September 2017

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2017–2019 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for Armenia is aligned with the government’s Armenia Development Strategy, 2014–2025 and the government’s program for 2017–2022. The COBP is consistent with the strategic priorities set out in ADB's Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, and is in line with the main directions and strategic priorities outlined in ADB's country partnership strategy (CPS) for Armenia, 2014–2018.

The overarching goal of the CPS is to help Armenia integrate its economy regionally and rebalance it toward more resilient, inclusive, and environmentally sustainable growth. This COBP supports the CPS’s strategic directions on (i) transport, by focusing on improving urban roads in secondary cities; and (ii) water and other urban infrastructure and services, by focusing on improving water supply and sanitation in selected areas. It also supports the current and emerging development priorities of the government, by focusing on reforms in the education and health sectors. In addition, the COBP promotes the main cross-cutting strategic priorities of the CPS—private sector development, knowledge solutions, environmental sustainability, gender, governance, and institutional strengthening.
