This TA helps the government to implement VSUTP successfully, and to sustainably operate the systems and facilities delivered by VSUTP though capacity building of stakeholders.

(ii) knowledge of advanced technologies/systems among decision makers developed, and (ii) Capacity on the urban transport management of newly established entity developed.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy VSUTP is a complex project with five main components. All these components will utilize high-level technologies and systems that are new to Lao PDR, namely, BRT system with centralized control center, smart parking fee collection system, electronic vehicle registration system, intelligent transport system (ITS) for traffic management, and NMT vehicles. It is important that key actors have up-to-date knowledge of technical and operational aspects of urban transport management entities, so that they will be able to manage the implementation of VSUTP and to carry on managing the system after VSUTP completion.
