Bangladesh-ADB: 40 Years of Development Partnership
Bangladesh has made impressive socioeconomic gains with a steady rise in its gross domestic product, a decrease in overall rates of poverty, boost in social development, and steady movement toward achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
ADB has been a key partner in Bangladesh's struggle for a better future since 1973 by contributing to critical socioeconomic and governance reforms. As of 31 December 2012, ADB's cumulative lending amounted to about $14.1 billion for 234 loans, and its technical assistance grants amounted to $221.7 million for 389 projects.
The country is also one of the largest recipients of concessional Asian Development Fund resources. ADB has been the second-largest source of development financing, and one of the lead financiers in energy, transport, education, water supply and sanitation, agriculture and natural resources, and finance sectors of Bangladesh.
