Asian Development Bank and Bangladesh: Fact Sheet

ADB is a leading multilateral development partner for Bangladesh’s transport, energy, and education sectors, and continues to support the development of infrastructure, skills, urban planning, and rural livelihoods across the country.

The bank is currently supporting Bangladesh under the country partnership strategy, 2016–2020, which aligns with the Government of Bangladesh’s Seventh Five Year Plan (FY 2016–FY 2020).

In 2019, ADB continued special initiatives to help strengthen the implementation capacity of the government, finance project preparatory works to improve project readiness, and enhance technical design covering environment, land acquisition, and involuntary resettlement. ADB’s new procurement policy and regulations, rolled out and operationalized in 2017, are helping ensure faster procurement and consultant recruitment as well as simpler and more effective fiduciary systems throughout the project cycle.

Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
