The Pacific Approach, 2016-2020, which is ADB's operational framework for the Pacific, serves as the country partnership strategy for Tonga and 10 other smaller Pacific island countries.
The country operations business plan (COBP), 2016-2018 for Tonga is aligned with the government’s Strategic Development Framework II, 2015-2025. The COBP supports the following priority outcomes of the national development plan:
- a dynamic public–private sector partnership as the main engine of growth;
- appropriate, wellplanned, and well-maintained infrastructure that improves the everyday lives of the people and lowers the cost of doing business; and
- integration of environmental sustainability, disasterrisk management, and climate change adaptation into planning and program implementation.
