Pakistan: Country Operations Business Plan (2018–2020)

Institutional Document | November 2017

The country operations business plan (COBP) 2018–2020 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for Pakistan is aligned with ADB’s country partnership strategy, 2015–2019, which supports the Government of Pakistan’s objective of high, sustained, and inclusive growth. The COBP is also consistent with the priorities set out in ADB’s Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, and is aligned with the government’s development strategy “Vision 2025,” and the development plans of the provincial governments.

The COBP comprises project loans, policy-based lending for government-led policy reforms, results-based lending for infrastructure development, and institutional reforms. ADB will reengage in the education and health sectors, and will actively explore greater use of high technology and innovative approaches in projects to support the Sustainable Development Goals.
