It will focus on boosting economic competitiveness and creating good jobs, building inclusive infrastructure and services in low-income states, and addressing challenges related to climate change and the environment. ADB also fosters regional cooperation and integration, private sector development, institutional capacity development, and knowledge sharing as part of its operations in India.
