Through a $30 million loan, ADB is expanding its support for better public financial management in Cambodia to support effective and efficient public service delivery and inclusive growth.
ADB and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) have signed an agreement under which Sida will guarantee up to $155 million of ADB sovereign loans. This allows ADB to increase its lending capacity by $500 million over the next 10 years from its Ordinary Capital Resources.
ADB offers a range of financial products that help developing member countries (DMCs) build economic growth and social development. These tools include loans, technical assistance, and grants.
Public sector (sovereign) financing is extended to DMC governments and public sector entities, such as state-owned enterprises. Sovereign lending or financing secured by a government guarantee forms the greater part of ADB’s development assistance.
