There is strong justification for the TA under the ADB Microfinance Development Strategy, the two countries' country partnership strategies, and earlier TA projects. The Microfinance Development Strategy confirms the role of ADB in strengthening regulatory regimes for products such as microinsurance. The finance sector road map in the PRC country partnership strategy 2008?2010 provides for ADB to support the government in developing policy and regulatory reform, and strengthening cooperation among financial regulators. The Mongolia country strategy and program update 2007?2009 provides for expanded capital market growth by TA and potential equity involvement in the insurance sector. ADB's current TA projects for microinsurance in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and prior successes in strengthening insurance regulators in the PRC and Mongolia greatly help microinsurance development.
