Philippines: Country Operations Business Plan (2016–2018)

Institutional Document | December 2015

To achieve more inclusive growth and address income inequalities and regional disparities, the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) country operations business plan (COBP) for 2016–2018 will focus on four interrelated priority areas. These are (i) sustainable and climate-resilient infrastructure, (ii) good governance and inclusive finance, (iii) inclusive employment and education, and (iv) regional integration. 

The COBP is in line with the priorities identified in the country partnership strategy for the Philippines for 2011–2016, the government’s Philippine Development Plan for 2011–2016, and the recommendations of the midterm review of ADB’s Strategy 2020.
