Asian Development Bank and India: Fact Sheet

Publication | April 2021

ADB is supporting the Government of India’s pre-emptive and proactive measures to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and mitigate its adverse impacts while fostering the country’s recovery process.

Over the past 2 decades, India has witnessed sound economic growth to emerge as one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. Poverty has been more than halved since 2004, but the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in 2020 hampered the country’s economic growth trajectory and caused severe health, social, and economic impacts.

ADB intends to sustain its regular assistance program and deploy additional resources to support India’s many COVID-19-related challenges. The bank will seek to accelerate efforts for financial leveraging to attract private investments and promote local resource mobilization.

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