Project Description

The overall objectives of the Project are to promote economic activities and facilitate trade among Cambodia, Thailand, and Viet Nam and to improve the prospects for poverty reduction along the Southern Economic Corridor. The Project will: (i) together with other ongoing and planned investments funded by other development partners, promote national and subregional economic growth by reducing the cost and increasing the reliability of transport, which will also encourage the fast-growing tourism industry and subregional trade, and promote general economic growth; (ii) reduce poverty by providing all-year, all-weather access to employment opportunities, markets, and growth centers; (iii) improve social conditions by providing all-year, all-weather access to education and health; (iv) promote private sector participation and strengthen the domestic road-contracting industry by providing opportunities in road construction and maintenance; (v) work with an experienced nongovernment organization (NGO) under the national human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) framework to support efforts to control the disease and create awareness of it; (vi) initiate a process of reform for MPWT, particularly for the road sector in which asset management and transparency must be a guiding theme; and (vii) establish effective road maintenance management and road maintenance financing systems.
