Asia Pacific & Africa needs new infrastructure. Roads, airports, schools, hospitals and housing: the list is enormous and growing. Yet severely limited budgets and deficits continue to prevent government at all levels from delivering the kinds of structural change that has always been needed.

In response, countries in the region have developed relatively successful PPP programmes - similar in many ways yet with specific national characteristics. Challenges remain throughout the region and are intensifying in the current environment. This course faces these head on and delivers expertise in an interactive environment filled with case studies, group discussions and technical evaluation.

Merely grasping the concepts of PPP does not do justice to our great responsibility of having an ownership in your country's future. We already know what we need to do, now is the time to really discover HOW.

This master class aims to do just that. Beginning with an in-depth understanding of how PPPs work, from financial, commercial, project & legal aspects, we seek to push our participants to innovate with real life case studies, group discussions and technical evaluation.

Course Highlights

  • Financial & Commercial aspect of PPP e.g. funding, how to attract investors, project finance, ROI
  • Project aspect of PPP e.g. project planning, cost control, risks, implementation
