This is the report and recommendation of the president (RRP) on a proposed multitranche financing facility (MFF) to the People’s Republic of Bangladesh for the Secondary Education Sector Investment Program. The RRP describes the terms and conditions for the approval of ADB's Management or Board of Directors.

The proposed investment program will support the government’s reform of secondary education (grades 6–12) into a system that builds the foundation for a skilled labor force and prepares youths to meet the requirements of a rapidly developing economy. It will support advanced teaching and learning programs that use information and communication technology (ICT), as well as prevocational and vocational programs, teacher development, and examination reforms. It will promote gender-equitable and pro-poor stipends for students. It will help establish more decentralized and efficient allocation and use of resources, as well as strengthen sector performance monitoring.
