Report and recommendation of the President to the Board of Directors describing terms and conditions proposed for the North-South Corridor Project in Afghanistan, for the approval of ADB's Board of Directors.

The Project will help the Government promote economic and social development and reduce poverty by rehabilitating the national highway network, which will connect remote areas in central Afghanistan to the ring road. The project roads pass through Balkh, Bamian, and Samangan provinces, which are located at the center of the country and characterized by mountainous terrain with altitudes up to 3,500 meters.
