China - Inner Mongolia Local Railway Project (English)

This is the Implementation Completion Report (ICR) for the Inner Mongolia Local Railway Project in China. It had three objectives: (a) to provide low-cost, reliable freight and passenger transportation, facilitating in particular the movement of coal and other products from western Inner Mongolia to northeastern China; (b) to promote regional development; and (c) to support formation of a local company to manage what became the longest locally-administered railway in China. The Bank's performance was somewhat mixed. In general, identification, preparation and appraisal of the project was satisfactory. The Borrower's performance was satisfactory. The main lessons learned from this project were: a) In considering future railways projects-especially those where substantial traffic exchanges are involved-the Bank should devote particular attention to the commercial aspects of these intra-railway relationships; b) in evaluating future railway investment projects, the Bank should recognize the potential competitive dynamics that such investments can promote; c) supervision of projects should include a thorough review of compliance with financing arrangements.
