Philippines: Country Operations Business Plan (2021–2023)

Institutional Document | December 2020

ADB's country partnership strategy for the Philippines, 2018–2023 focuses on achieving high and inclusive growth by accelerating infrastructure and long-term investments, promoting local economic development with a focus on Mindanao and Visayas, and targeting investments in people at the bottom 40% of the population. ADB’s country partnership strategy closely aligns with both its Strategy 2030, and the Philippine Development Plan, 2017–2022. It mainstreams crosscutting support to promote private sector participation, gender equality, environmentally sustainable development, and regional cooperation. At least 75% of all programs and projects for 2021–2023 will be gender mainstreamed.

ADB’s country operations business plan for the Philippines is adjusted to align with the government’s approach in dealing with the socioeconomic impact of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, as prescribed in We Recover As One Strategy.
