Description

An increase in technical assistance (TA) amount by $15.5 million as described in para. 16, which will finance the major changes in scope as described in paras. 17-21, is proposed for Board consideration for the technical assistance on Strengthening Public-Private Partnerships in the Philippines. The proposed increase is due to the progress in the government's PPP program resulting in faster-than-expected absorption of TA funding for the preparation of bankable PPP projects, and the need to provide more comprehensive TA support to sustain the positive momentum in PPP reforms.
