Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The project is consistent with ADB's Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, which aims to achieve inclusive economic growth in its developng member countries through the provision of infrastructure that would connect the poor to markets and increase their access to basic productive assets. Strategy 2020 promotes PPP arrangements in the transport sector and encourages ADB support for PPP projects through direct financing.

ADB's country partnership strategy, 2011-2016 aims to help the country achieve high, inclusive, and sustainable growth. The strategy supports infrastructure development, which includes improvement of the country's port operations through PPP arrangements.

ADB's Sustainable Transport Initiative emphasizes private sector participation in transport as an integral part of mainstreaming sustainable transport in its developing member countries.
