Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The proposed TA is consistent with the directions in the 12th five-year 2011-2015 plan and is aligned with ADB's country partnership strategy, which seeks to develop sustainable and integrated transport systems. The proposed TA will support Chongqing Municipality as it plans and implements projects and policies under the 12th five-year plan 2011-2015 and prepares for the 13th five-year plan 2016-2020. The TA is also closely aligned with ADB's Sustainable Transport Initiative Operational Plan, which identifies IWT as a key opportunity to promote safe and low-carbon transport that can support environmentally sustainable and inclusive growth.

In 2011, the State Council of the PRC endorsed a plan to accelerate the development of the Yangtze River and other inland waterways within 10 years. As part of the effort, the improvement of the Chongqing Yangtze River shipping center has been adopted as an national strategy. The Chongqing Municipal Government is promoting construction of the upper reaches of the Yangtze River shipping center with the goal of making Chongqing the main freight transport and logistic hub for the western part of the PRC.
