The Government has recognized the importance of integrated intermodal systems under the draft Integrated Multimodal Transport Policy. Port development provides significant opportunities for improvement of intermodal transport systems and logistics services, and hence enhances efficiency of economic activities. Ports development also provide opportunities of expanding regional trades, especially under the recent renewal of the Protocol on Inland Water Transit and Trade Agreement with India. ADB strategy in the transport sector includes promotion of multimodal transport systems and regional trades by developing transit links and cross-border facilities. This PPTA is required to ensure full compliance of ADB safeguard requirements and quality assessment in key areas such as project economics and results monitoring.
