Vanuatu: Country Operations Business Plan, 2017-2019

Institutional Document | November 2016

The Vanuatu country operations business plan (COBP) 2017–2019 is aligned with the strategic priorities of the Pacific Approach, 2016–2020; the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020; and the government’s Priorities and Action Agenda, 2006–2015, along with Vanuatu’s infrastructure strategic investment plan and national energy road map. 

This COBP continues the approach of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in Vanuatu through support to three sectors: energy, transport, and water and other urban infrastructure and services. Public sector management is a new sector for ADB involvement in this COBP. Vanuatu will also be included in regional operations on agribusiness and tourism. Private sector development is supported through the Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative and the Pacific Business Investment Facility.
