The Asian Development Bank (ADB) plans a $313.9 million assistance program, including expected cofinancing from other development partners for Tajikistan over the next three years. The indicative program stresses improving regional connections and investment climate. The assistance program agreed upon with the government is described in a recently endorsed Country Operations Business Plan (COBP) for 2014-2016, essentially a pipeline of projects that ADB wishes to support.
According to the COBP, the Railway Development Project remains on standby for 2014 but is firm for 2015, with a $100 million budget. The TA to prepare the project is now planned for 2014 on a firm basis.
