Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB's Country Strategy and Program in the road sector supports (i) construction of roads that connect major growth centers and link the hinterland economies; (ii) integration of the network so that the national trunk highway system is supported by a system of local roads, particularly those that provide access to poor areas; (iii) promotion of road safety and reduction of vehicle emissions; (iv) institutional strengthening to increase the commercial orientation and efficiency of expressway organizations; (v) improvement of highway planning and evaluation techniques; (vi) adoption of pricing policies to ensure optimum use of road transport capacity; and (vii) use of alternative methods of investment financing, including private sector participation. ADB road sector assistance targets the less developed central and western provinces, where most of the poor live. The Project is consistent with the PRC?s development priorities and ADB?s strategy.
