Publication | October 2020

ADB operations will expand economic opportunities by supporting economic reforms, improved connectivity and infrastructure, and better access to social services.

Developing a vibrant private sector is key to diversifying Bhutan’s economy, generating more broad-based growth, and creating sustainable jobs. The bank has been supporting Bhutan since 1982, mostly concentrating its efforts on programs and projects in energy, transport, finance, and urban development.

To support regional cooperation, ADB has included four South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation projects in its country operations business plan, 2020–2022 for Bhutan.

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