According to bank documents, inadequate infrastructure remains a critical development constraint to economic growth in the Philippines. This is mainly due to low public and private investments in infrastructure. The proposed Expanding Private Participation in Infrastructure Program supports the attainment of the accelerated infrastructure development objectives of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP), 2011–2016. This will be done by supporting sequenced reforms of the Government of the Philippines aimed at stepping up private investment in infrastructure through the promotion of public–private partnership (PPP) projects.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
