The volume of the annual operation of the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) crossed $30 billion mark in the last year.

t is for the first time in ADBs’ 50-year history when the bank’s annual financing reached at such a high level.

It showed that ADB’s total lending in 2016, which includes co-financing, reached $31.70 billion, an 18 per cent increase from 2015.

The total amount includes $17.47 billion in approvals for loans and grants, $169 million for technical assistance and $14.06 billion for co-financing, which increased by a record 31 per cent over 2015. 

Disbursements, a key indicator for successful project implementation, also reached a new high of $12.26 billion in 2016.

Private sector operations reached $2.5 billion for the second time in ADB’s history which reflects ADB’s long-term strategy to significantly boost support for private enterprise to create more high quality jobs and increase living standards across Asia and the Pacific. 

ADB’s private sector operations also generated a record $5.84 billion in co-financing. 

All these figures update the provisional operations numbers released by ADB in January.
