Description

An increase in technical assistance (TA) amount by $3 million to finance the major changes in scope is proposed for consideration by the Board of Directors of ADB for the Strengthening Public-Private Partnerships in the Philippines. The proposed increase is due to the confirmation by the Government of Canada, through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), of the additional cofinancing on a grant basis of $3 million for the TA’s capacity building component. The proposed increase in TA amount will result in a larger number of well-prepared public–private partnership (PPP) projects for competitive bidding to sustain the positive momentum in the Philippines' PPP program.
