According to the bank document, the project aims to develop well-trained skilled workforce meeting the needs of priority industries (agricultural products processing, equipment manufacturing, and tourism) in Xinzhou municipality, Shanxi province, People's Republic of China (PRC). The project will have three outputs:
(i) priority industry development strategies and action plans incorporating skills development introduced;
(ii) technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions offering majors in line with the needs of priority industries established; and
(iii) TVET system reform pilots implemented.
Assistance from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) will add value by facilitating access to knowledge and expertise in school-enterprise cooperation, public-private partnerships, and digital and cleaner technologies and solutions. Lessons learned from ongoing TVET projects in the PRC, especially the need for hands-on support to TVET institutions on competency-based approaches, will be considered to strengthen the design of the project. ADB will also support the dissemination of innovative reform pilots implemented under the project to Shanxi and other provinces in the PRC.

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.
