ISLAMABAD -$7.2 billion to be injected in Pakistan economy by Asian Development Bank (ADB) in next three years.

ADB will provide $2.5 billion in approved financing to Pakistan in 2019, it said in a tweet on Wednesday.

“ADB will provide $2.5 billion in approved financing to Pakistan in 2019, and recently approved Country Operations Business Plan (COBP) 2020-2022 will increase average lending to $2.4 billion a year - a record increase over the $1.4 billion average from 2015 to 2018," it tweeted.
