The proposed TA will strengthen MPW in its core functions, assist in enhancing management's capacities including policy formulation, sector planning, and regulation. Considering that MPW has also been designated implementing agency for all transport sector projects, the TA will provide the needed support to project conceptualization and for administration of ongoing projects. The Government requested ADB assistance for the TA in February 2020 during the review mission.
