Description The Yunnan Puer Municipal Government (PMG) has proposed a project with the following components: (i) Puer City rural road construction (upgrade of 600 kilometers [km] of rural earthen roads), (ii) rehabilitation of the Ninger-Jiangcheng-Longfu road (253 km), and (iii) construction of the Simao-Ninger road (50 km). The proposed project will contribute to inclusive growth and regional integration by connecting isolated rural communities and border areas to the regional road network and providing infrastructure to support trade and regional cooperation between the People's Republic of China (PRC), Viet Nam, Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), and Myanmar.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The proposed Project will contribute to inclusive growth and regional integration by connecting isolated rural communities and border areas to the regional road network and providing infrastructure to support trade and regional cooperation between the People's Republic of China (PRC), Viet Nam, Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), and Myanmar. The proposed Project components will help to link the wider area of Pu'er to this vital economic corridor and promote regional cooperation.

The proposed Project is a priority project in the government's 12th Five-Year Plan. It supports the government's regional cooperation objectives and helps connect rural villages to the growing regional transport and trade systems. It is also aligned with the key thrusts of Asian Development Bank's (ADB's) assistance to the PRC under the 2011-2015 country partnership strategy in the areas of: (i) inclusive growth and balanced development, and (ii) regional cooperation and integration. The project fits well with ADB's Sustainable Transport Initiative (STI) which identifies regional cooperation and integration, road safety and social sustainability as key opportunities.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

The project will have a consultation and participation strategy to ensure meaningful consultation with all key stakeholders. The consultation and participation strategy will ensure timely information to communities, project affected households and all relevant agencies. The project agencies will disseminate information about the area development plans and how this project complements those efforts to ensure better social and economic conditions in the communities and for project beneficiaries.

At the Interim Review Mission (9 to 12 September) a major scope change was proposed by the EA. The Simao to Ninger highway component was removed as it is deemed to clash with revised land use plans. The EA has requested that a Myanmar border road (Menglian to Meng'a) be included in the project as a substitute. Subject to the determination of economic feasibility the ADB will support the substitution. The DRC are in the process of reviewing the change and will communicate their approval or otherwise by 15 October. Another review mission is scheduled in December 2013, a loan fact finding mission in March 2014 and board approval is scheduled for October 2014.

During Project Implementation Consultation and participation strategy will continue during implementation.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services

The PPTA will be implemented using a mix of individual consultants and international consulting firms as appropriate. ADB will hire the international consulting firm(s) using simplified technical proposal(s) and quality- and cost-based selection with a quality to cost ratio of 80:20.

It is estimated that the project will require about 30 months of staff time (including staff consultant resources) from 2012 to 2014 to prepare the project up to loan approval.
