According to the bank document, the proposed project is responsive to Asian Development Bank’s (ADB’s) country partnership strategy for Myanmar, which includes improving access and connectivity to address critical infrastructure needs, connect rural and urban areas and markets, and link Myanmar’s businesses with its neighbors and the global marketplace.
It is also aligned with ADB’s Strategy 2030, which highlights the operational priorities in accelerating progress in gender equality and the need for private sector participation in infrastructure projects in new communication technologies and the mobilization of private sector resources for innovation and job creation.
Ooredoo Myanmar will access ADB’s assistance to expand its fourth-generation (4G) network coverage, upgrade telecommunications equipment for existing sites, expand fiber cable network, and acquire additional spectrums and licenses.

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
