Azerbaijan: Country Operations Business Plan (2018–2020)
The country operations business plan (COBP), 2018–2020 is consistent with the country partnership strategy, 2014–2018 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for Azerbaijan that focuses on promoting inclusive growth by increasing economic opportunities and improving access to basic services. The COBP is also aligned with the Government of Azerbaijan’s Strategic Roadmap on the National Economy Perspective adopted in December 2016, and considers the strategies and priorities of other development partners in Azerbaijan.
The COBP comprises (i) programmatic policy-based lending (PBL) in public sector management, and (ii) sector development program (SDP) in the railway sector. The PBL and SDP modalities used for the first time in Azerbaijan will optimally meet the government’s reform and investment financing needs in the concerned sectors.
