With the government’s Private Public Partnership (PPP) programme getting underway, it is important for the Sri Lankan private sector to understand how PPPs work and how to latch on to PPP projects in an array of sectors ranging from energy, transport, water, waste management, or social infrastructure. The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the USAID Short-Term Assistance to Improve Public Financial Management Reform (STAIR) Project and the Department of Public Finance of the Ministry of Finance is organizing a workshop on Private Public Partnerships (PPPs) exclusively for Chamber members on the 22nd of August 2017 from 2.00 pm – 4.30 pm.
The lead resource person for the workshop Mr. David Baxter will be drawing on his 25 years of experience in international infrastructure development, strategic partnerships, risk management and project and program management to provide a practical overview of PPP participation for Ceylon Chamber members. David has provided infrastructure-consulting services to clients located in Africa, North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Europe and Asia. He is also a PPP advisor to the USACE, the World Bank, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and other government and institutional organizations.
The workshop will provide private sector companies with an understanding the definition, rationale, and different structuring options for PPP contracts; how to manage and complete detailed PPP feasibility studies and structuring PPP consulting & advisory contracts; how to finance PPP investments, PPP credit enhancements, and reaching transaction financial closure; and PPP contract management and performance monitoring, among other areas.
The workshop is open for free registration for Chamber members. As seating is limited, registration will be on a first come first serve basis. Contact Shenali on firstname.lastname@example.org
