Project Description

According to ADB website, the country partnership strategy positions ADB's public sector operations to strengthen the enabling environment for private sector development by financing infrastructure, supporting policy and regulatory reforms, and improving access to finance. Urban development is identified as a priority area for support for private sector participation and PPPs during 2011-2015. The CPS also provides for the complementary support for knowledge sharing to promote best practices.

The impact will be a strengthened enabling environment for PPPs. Performance will be measured by the ranking of the PRC’s enabling environment for PPPs in the Asian Infrascope’s developed country category by 2018. The outcome will be an improved legal framework for the promotion, development, and implementation of PPPs. Performance will be measured by the presentation of a draft concession law to the State Council in 2015.
