Asian Development Bank and Palau: Fact Sheet

Publication | September 2023

Palau is a small island developing state in the northern Pacific. It is exceptionally vulnerable to natural hazards, and its narrow economy exposes it to international market volatility.

ADB is focusing its assistance in Palau on improving public sector performance and promoting private sector development to reinvigorate the tourism sector. ADB will complement this assistance with financing for key infrastructure investments that deliver inclusive economic and social benefits.

The bank will continue to encourage Palau’s involvement in regional cooperation programs, particularly in expanding access to renewable energy resources, improving energy efficiency, and responding to the impacts of climate change.

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