46056-001: Fiscal Policy for Urbanization, Industrialization, and Agricultural Modernization in Henan

Project Data Sheet (PDS): Details


The TA will assist the Henan provincial government to analyze the interlinkages among various aspects of urbanization, industrialization, and agricultural modernization; and to formulate effective fiscal policy recommendations to support integrated development led by new urbanization. Building on previous TAs, the TA will focus on defining fiscal policy choices to support the integrated three transformations development strategy. The policy recommendations will be made relevant not only to Henan and the central government, but also to the neighboring provinces included in the Central Plain Economic Zone. The TA findings can also serve as case studies for further work of Government and ADB on local government financing and fiscal decentralization.
