Bangladesh: Country Operations Business Plan (2021-2023)

Institutional Document | August 2020

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2021–2023 is aligned with the country partnership strategy, 2016–2020 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) that ends this year.

The COBP is also consistent with the guiding principles of the 8th five-year plan (under preparation) and its core themes of promoting prosperity and fostering inclusiveness, and ADB’s Strategy 2030. The COBP includes projects in agriculture, natural resources, and rural development; education; health; energy; finance; transport; and water supply and other urban infrastructure and services sectors. It continues to support gender inclusion, climate resilience, balanced regional development, and private sector participation. It emphasizes the inclusion of innovative approaches and new technology in projects and programs, and full leveraging of cofinancing opportunities. Adopting the “One-ADB” approach, ADB will continue to scale up its private sector operations while pursuing public–private partnership projects.
