In the government's five-year public investment plan 2012- 2016, the road sector is expected to receive investments of about $6 billion. As part of the plan, the government intends to select about 1,000 rural communities according to the population, development potentials, and the distance to trunk roads to extend the development benefits to rural areas. ADB is requested to assist the government in addressing the connectivity issues for these communities. The investment program is in line with the government's sector objective: establishing a modern transport system that will enable acceleration of economic growth. As agreed with the government, ADB will contribute to the sector outcome of improved nationwide connectivity. A multitranche financing facility (MFF) is proposed as the financing modality for the investment program. Table 1 explains why the MFF is more suitable than other modalities.
