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 investment program aims to support the efforts of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region (Guangxi) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for promoting regional cooperation and integration (RCI), particularly with neighboring Viet Nam. Given the nature of RCI, the investment program will cover various sectors and will have impacts not only on Guangxi, but also on the other side of the border. Various subprojects in multiple sectors have been proposed for financing under a Multitranche Financing Facility (MFF). A project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) will be needed to help the executing agency prepare and design the MFF, and properly address the RCI dimension of the investment program.

The PPTA will engage international and national consultants to (i) conduct sector reviews to identify key issues to be addressed by the investment program, (ii) identify subprojects in the first tranche of the MFF and help the executing agency prepare preliminary feasibility studies, which may include technical, financial, economic, and socioeconomic analysis; cost estimates; environmental and social impact assessment; preparation of institutional and capacity development plans; and a study for initial benchmark indicators, (iii) conduct pre-implementation work for the investment program, (iv) assist the executing agency and implementing agencies in assessing preliminary engineering designs and specifications; verifying detailed cost estimates; recommending procurement arrangements and preparing terms of references for procurement consulting services during MFF implementation, (v) suggest key features in contractual agreements or other necessary legal or institutional arrangements, and (vi) contribute to the preparation of the facility administration manual.

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:
