Asian Development Bank and the Philippines: Fact Sheet

Publication | May 2020

ADB’s partnership strategy for the Philippines focuses on accelerating infrastructure and long-term investments, promoting local economic development, and investing in people.

ADB has been a strong partner in the development of the Philippines, the bank’s host country, and is one of its largest sources of official development assistance.

ADB’s Country Partnership Strategy 2018–2023 for the Philippines supports the Long-Term Vision of the Philippines Towards 2040 (AmBisyon Natin 2040) and closely aligns with the Philippine Development Plan 2017–2022. The bank is working closely with the government to enhance the technical and institutional capacities of national and local agencies and staff; improve interagency coordination; and strengthen partnerships among the government, private sector, and development partners.

The bank has rebalanced its financing program to infrastructure in support of the government’s “Build, Build, Build” (BBB) program, local economic development, and social investments to help the bottom 40% of the population.

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