|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The power sector is currently undergoing reforms and restructuring, supported by ADB. In the transition phase, sector sustainability needs to be ensured. By providing liquidity for augmentation and expansion projects as well as for larger maintenance work, the proposed project will contribute to achieving sustainability in the sector. To achieve the economic growth tragets the Government has set, the power sector needs to increase its generation capacity, efficiency, and coverage. The project will also increase the confidence of commercial financiers in financing long-term transmission and distribution assets during the transmission period.|
