eC2: Financing Options Analysis for the ASEAN Rolling Pipeline of Priority Infrastructure Projects

Deadline: 31-Dec-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

To enhance connectivity and attract more public and private investments for

modern city with highway interchangeinfrastructure in ASEAN, MPAC 2025 recommended the establishment of a rolling priority pipeline list of potential ASEAN infrastructure projects and sources of funds.

The Initial Pipeline consists of 16-20 projects submitted by the ASEAN Member States and selected and prioritized by the World Bank based on a screening and scoring process assessing key project factors such as strategic relevance, impact on regional connectivity, environmental and social impact, project feasibility, and the contracting agency’s implementation capacity.

In the next phase, the World Bank will undertake a financing options analysis of each of the projects in the Initial Pipeline to determine the best procurement option for the project i.e., to determine whether the project should be publicly funded, privately financed or funded/financed through a Public Private Partnership. Where a project already has a robust and recently conducted pre-feasibility or feasibility study, the information and data required to undertake such analysis should already be available. However, for those projects that do not have such a study available, it will be necessary to undertake the relevant studies and review.

Accelerating progress towards human capital and financial inclusion

Last week, more than 11,000 delegates from the World Bank Group’s member countries baby3–public and private sector attendees–gathered at our Annual Meetings in Indonesia to discuss how we can accelerate progress toward our twin goals: to end extreme poverty by 2030 and boost shared prosperity among the poorest 40 percent around the world.

Disruptive technologies create opportunities for development but they also put those goals at risk. Our discussion this past week focused on the changing the nature of work – the topic of our World Development Report this year. While technology and automation are doing away with some jobs, innovation is also creating new occupations, and launching career fields that didn’t exist a few years ago. Those who are prepared for this future will have many opportunities to achieve their aspirations. Those who are not will be left behind.
