Railway Sector Reform Program, Subprogram 1


The proposed Railway Sector Reform Program aims to establish the economic and financial sustainability of the railway sector in Georgia, with profitability and debt service coverage ratios reestablished at effective levels. The program will provide a policy-based loan to assist in the reform of the Georgian railway system to strengthen financial stability and investment planning capacity through the provision of more efficient, demand-driven railway transport services for both freight markets and passenger public service obligations. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) will provide a transaction technical assistance (TA) grant to the Government of Georgia and Georgian Railway to support capacity building and the design and implementation of railway reforms. This includes assistance in implementing the policy loan by supporting the Georgian Railway departments that oversee the reforms identified in the program's policy matrix.
