“This has been on the back of numerous other arrangements we have with ADB, including technical support, capacity building, and there’s been some grant funding being given, in particular during the pandemic period in terms of assisting the Ministry of Health and our ability to respond to those challenges.”

Meanwhile, the ADB and the Economy Ministry last week signed a $150 million loan agreement to enhance economic recovery and boost business productivity.
