Lao People's Democratic Republic: Country Operations Business Plan (2019-2021)

Institutional Document | September 2018

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2019–2021 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) is consistent with ADB’s country partnership strategy (CPS), 2017–2020 for the Lao PDR.

The CPS supports inclusive and sustainable growth through three strategic priorities: (i) infrastructure and private sector development to support employment and income generation, (ii) enhanced human development, and (iii) sustainable natural resource management and climate resilience. Gender equity and governance are crosscutting themes. The COBP, 2019–2021 supports implementation of the Ha Noi Action Plan, 2018–2022 and the Overview of the Regional Investment Framework 2022 for the Greater Mekong Subregion.
