Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The PPTA is consistent with ADB's Country Strategy and Program for the Philippines, which lists inadequate infrastructure as among the six major constraints for the country to achieve rapid poverty alleviation. The Country Operations Business Plan (2009-2010) for the Philippines encourages support for the development of critical infrastructure by the private sector consistent with Strategy 2020. Among the critical infrastructure needed to improve the quality of life and spur economic growth in the country is the cost-efficient expansion and improvement of electricity infrastructure, particularly in remote rural areas and isolated islands where the Government aims to achieve 90% electrification at the household level by 2017.
