Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The proposed program will upgrade the schooling environment, improve the quality of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) standards and teaching, strengthen school-enterprise partnerships, and promote regional cooperation through partnership with institutions in the ASEAN region and strengthen management capacity of TVET system.

Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region is located in southwestern part of the People's Republic of China (PRC) along the maritime belt, and sharing a long border with Viet Nam. In March 2015, President Xi Jinping urged Guangxi to become the PRC's pathway to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a new strategic pivot in southwest and central part of the PRC's opening up, and a dynamic portal connecting the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (Belt and Road Initiative). The Belt and Road Initiative extends PRC's opening-up frontiers to western part of the PRC and the border regions, making Guangxi a direct beneficiary. Ranking 27 out of 31 provinces in the PRC, Guangxi is among the poorer with a per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of about CNY35,000 in 2015 (70% of the national per capita GDP). Guangxi has the largest ethnic minority population in the PRC, comprising 11 ethnic groups and making up 38% of a total population of about 55.2 million in 2015. A significant 12.6% (compared to 6.1% national average), or 6.95 million, of the population lives below the national poverty line (CNY2,300/year). However, it is also among the fastest growing economies averaging 10% growth over the last 3 years.

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.
