Multitranche Financing Facility (MFF) - Malolos-Clark Railway Project-Tranche 1

Asian Development Bank

The project will support the construction of two sections, totaling 53.1 kilometers (km), of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR), a 163 km suburban railway network connecting the regional center of Clark in Central Luzon with Metro Manila and Calamba, Laguna. The Malolos-Clark Railway Project comprises: (i) Malolos-Clark section (51.2 km) from Malolos to Clark and Clark International Airport, and (ii) Blumentritt extension (1.9 km) connecting Solis and Blumentritt stations in Metro Manila District I (City of Manila). Both sections are part of the NSCR and extensions of the Tutuban-Solis-Malolos section financed by the Japan International Cooperation Agency. The NSCR will be completed during 2022-2025 as an integrated 163 km dedicated suburban passenger railway system comprising four sections: (i) Tutuban-Solis-Malolos, (ii) Malolos-Clark-Clark International Airport, (iii) Solis-Blumentritt-Calamba, and (iv) Clark-New Clark City. The project will provide affordable, reliable, and safe public transport; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and contribute to cutting travel time from Metro Manila to Clark from 2-3 hours (by bus) to less than 1 hour by rail.

COVID-19 Active Response and Expenditure Support Program

Asian Development Bank

The COVID-19 Active Response and Expenditure Support (CARES) Program, under the Countercyclical Support Facility COVID-19 Pandemic Response Option (CPRO) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), will provide critically needed support to help the government mitigate the severe health, social, and economic impact caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. ADB's support will allow the government to undertake public expenditures that are essential for supporting vulnerable populations and curtailing spread of the disease. The ADB CARES Program will contribute directly to the immediate priorities in government's response to the pandemic- the need to improve access to health facilities and care, and protect the weakest economic section of the population and disadvantaged groups. It will contribute to the government's efforts in containing COVID-19 and treating infected people, for free, thus protecting the lives of the poor and vulnerable and preventing them from falling deeper into poverty because of medical expenses. The program also targets providing social assistance and protection over 3 months to more than 800 million people, including families below poverty line, farmers, health care workers, women, women's self-help groups, widows, senior citizens, people with disabilities, low wage earners, and construction workers. Beneficiaries will be reached through established channels under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana (PMGKY), or the Prime Minister's Welfare Scheme for the Poor. Food, gas, and cash for the affected and vulnerable beneficiaries will help them endure the shocks induced by the lockdown. Support in these areas will help a quicker economic recovery when the lockdown is eased. Any further fiscal stimulus will be sub-optimal if these urgent concerns are not addressed. The numbers of beneficiaries are detailed in the government's COVID-19 Response Program.

Energy Sector Reforms and Financial Sustainability Program (Subprogram 1)

Asian Development Bank

The proposed Energy Sector Reforms and Financial Sustainability Program aims to address fiscal, governance, technical, and policy deficits in Pakistan's energy sector.
