Abstract: For a projective manifold whose tangent bundle is of nonnegative degree, a vector bundle on it with a holomorphic connection actually admits a compatible flat holomorphic connection, if the manifold satisfies certain conditions. The conditions in question are on the Harder-Narasimhan filtration of the tangent bundle, and on the Neron-Severi group.
