Education for Employment Sector Development Program: Report and Recommendation of the President

Reports and Recommendations of the President | September 2019

The project is part of the long-term Asian Development Bank (ADB) support to strengthen human capital development in the Lao People's Democratic Republic. The policy-based loan (PBL) will help the Ministry of Education and Sports (MOES) to undertake reforms to progressively align post-primary education (PPE)—including secondary education, technical and vocational education and training (TVET), and higher education—with evolving labor demand and skill needs. The project component will support MOES in delivering these reforms effectively, widening access to secondary education, and improving its quality. The project builds on the Secondary Education Sector Development Program (SESDP) and will tap synergies with ongoing ADB support for TVET and higher education.

The report and recommendation of the President to the Board of Directors (RRP) document describes the terms and conditions of a project for consideration and approval by ADB's Board of Directors.

This document dated September 2019 is provided for the ADB project 50399-003 in the Lao People's Democratic Republic.
