Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Representatives of nongovernment organizations, civil society, mass organizations, community-based organizations, and private sector associations will participate in workshops and focus group discussions to formulate the project's participation plan and stakeholder communication strategy.

During Project Implementation
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services

Consultants will be engaged through two firms. The first consulting services package (Updating the GMS Tourism Sector Strategy) is expected to require 2 positions for 7 person-months of intermittent international specialist (IS) inputs, and 6 positions for 9 person-months of intermittent national specialist (NS) inputs. Consultant's qualifications selection (CQS) method using bio-data technical proposals will be followed. CQS is appropriate for this package because of the need for highly specialized expertise and timely mobilization of the consultants. The firm will administer workshops, report production, and other administration and support costs.

The second consulting services package (Preparing the Second GMS Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project) will require 8 positions for 45 person-months of intermittent IS inputs, and 16 positions for 40 person-months of intermittent NS inputs. Quality and cost-based selection method using full technical proposals weighted 90:10 technical-financial will be followed. The firm will administer workshops, surveys, vehicle rental, and other miscellaneous administration and support costs. ADB will select and engage all consultants according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants 2013 (as amended from time to time). All disbursements will be made in accordance with the ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
