Basic Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth in the Northeast Provinces Sector Project
The proposed Basic Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth in Northeast Provinces Sector Project (the Project) will improve the economic competitiveness of the four northeastern provinces (FNEP) of Bac Kan, Cao Bang, Ha Giang, and Lang Son. The Project will: (i) enhance FNEP connectivity by developing critical transport infrastructure; (ii) improve rural water supply; (iii) develop agriculture and rural value chains (ARVC); and (iv) strengthen the FNEP institutional capacity for subregional investment planning and development management. The Project will help to integrate the FNEP into national and subregional frameworks including the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), and the ASEAN Economic Community. It supports the National Target Programme on New Rural Development (NRD) and is consistent with ADB's Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) 2012 2015.

- Road connectivity improvements including to the border gates, and agro-business facilities from project investment is expected to result in improving the conditions of the poor and socially excluded among the beneficiaries through (i) the higher return/profitability for agro product value chains in the subregion due to lower time and cost of travel of people and goods and improved services, (ii) easier access to consumption markets for higher quality rural products, and (iii) improved incomes from tourism services (due to improved connectivity to tourist sites).
