Project Description

The Government of the PRC is committed to eradicating poverty and closing the income gap between urban and rural populations. E-commerce and internet-based support services are accelerating growth in rural areas which is contributing to structural reforms towards increased quality and market orientation of the agricultural supply chain.

FSMCAs in rural areas represent the backbone of agricultural services and have, therefore, been identified as the primary organization to deliver internet-plus services to accelerate agriculture sector modernization and integration.

The government has requested ADB to provide lending support for the Gansu Internet-Plus Based Socialized Agricultural Service System Development Project. Support to rural development, through agricultural modernization and value chain promotion approaches, is one of the strategic priorities of ADB's Country Partnership Strategy for the PRC, 2016 2020 and is also aligned with ADB's Operational Plan for Agriculture and Natural Resources.

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
