Asian Development Bank and Solomon Islands: Fact Sheet

ADB will continue to support transport infrastructure investments in line with the Solomon Islands National Transport Plan.

With such a widely dispersed population, transport is a key development priority for Solomon Islands. ADB supports the government’s National Transport Plan, which calls for integrated planning, environmental and social sustainability, and an infrastructure base that is resilient to natural disasters and climate change.

ADB has been working with Solomon Islands since 1973 and has approved 19 loan projects amounting to $123.42 million, 15 grant projects totaling $160.52 million, and 75 technical assistance projects totaling $31.2 million.

Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Solomon Islands as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
