PRIMEX Director in Mongolia to help form agriculture and rural development project

PRIMEX Director and Corporate Treasurer, Dr. Jerome F. Sison, has been in Mongolia since 4 July 2012 to lend technical assistance and support to the Project Management Office (PMO) of the Agriculture and Rural Development Project (ARDP) in finalizing the design of a project for additional loan financing by ADB.

Dr. Sison is guiding the PMO and national consultants in preparing the Report and Recommendations of the President to the Board of Directors (RRP) and the Project Administration Manual (PAM) for circulation to the ADB Board of Directors. He will also assist an ADB loan fact-finding mission, scheduled from 1-8 August 2012, in finalizing the design of the project.

The proposed additional financing for ARDP is expected to continue to help strengthen the international competitiveness of Mongolian agribusiness enterprises, thereby providing a suitable path for economic growth for the country’s agriculture sector.
