Asian Development Bank and Thailand: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2012
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Thailand as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has partnered with the Government of Thailand since it joined ADB as a founding member in 1966. The government encourages development partners in Thailand to coordinate their assistance, and ADB collaborates with the Agence Française de Développement, the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the Japan Bank for International Cooperation, United Nations agencies, and the World Bank in areas that are consistent with Thailand’s country partnership strategy (CPS). Such collaboration focuses on institutional capacity building to support Thailand’s national development agenda and its growing role as a regional development partner, infrastructure development in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), and clean and efficient energy technology. In addition, ADB cooperates with civil society organizations to strengthen the effectiveness, quality, and sustainability of the services it provides. The relationship with civil society organizations in Thailand has primarily been focused on knowledge sharing that will contribute to a better understanding of each party’s respective activities.
