Papua New Guinea: Country Operations Business Plan (2017-2019)
The country operations business plan, 2017–2019 is the second under the country partnership strategy (CPS) 2016–2020 for PNG. The strategy was developed in close consultation with the government and other stakeholders, and is aligned with the government’s Development Strategic Plan, 2010–2030 and National Strategy for Responsible Sustainable Development, 2014–2030. The CPS focuses on supporting rural populations by enhancing transport infrastructure, delivering health services, and reengaging in water and other urban infrastructure and services. This focus is consistent with the Midterm Review of Strategy 20205 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
ADB will continue to seek opportunities for cofinancing and to produce knowledge products that inform and influence national policy debates and support country operations. ADB support for private sector development—through state-owned enterprise reform—will lower business transaction costs, thereby helping to expand small and medium-sized enterprises and create jobs in the formal economy. ADB operations will focus on supporting climate proofing infrastructure and increasing the climate resilience of vulnerable sectors. ADB will mainstream gender in all general intervention projects.
