Georgia: Country Operations Business Plan (2018-2020)

Institutional Document | September 2017

The Country Operations Business Plan (COBP) 2018–2020 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is consistent with the Georgia country partnership strategy (CPS) 2014–2018, and the ADB strategic planning directions for 2017, focusing on sustainable transport, regional connectivity, and economic corridor development. The CPS and COBP are in line with the ADB Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, the Socio-economic Development Strategy of Georgia, and the Georgian government’s “Four-Point Action Plan.”

The COBP will support the government to (i) improve internal and regional market connectivity to enhance private sector competitiveness and broaden access to economic opportunities; (ii) provide reliable drinking water, sewerage, and sanitation services, particularly in secondary cities and towns that are potential hubs for agribusiness, tourism, and regional trade; (iii) improve the security and stability of electric power systems, especially for communities in lagging regions; (iv) strengthen public sector management for domestic resource mobilization, private sector and small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) development; and (v) increase access to finance and promote financial inclusion, particularly for microenterprises and SMEs.
