Fast-Tracking PPP Projects for Greater Economic Recovery

After the success of the 2019 PPP MENA Forum, which was supported by key PPP units across the region, and featured exclusive updates of PPP project pipelines by the participating countries, the 2nd edition will bring together all the key stakeholders from government entities, PPP units, developers, operators, investors, contractors and financial institutions to discuss pressing challenges facing the sector and exchange ideas on how PPP projects can be fast tracked, best practices for managing contractual issues and innovative funding models for upcoming PPPs.

The events of the last 12 months and counting have shaken the global community to its core, with effects on all sectors around the world, and the economic impact on Public Private Partnerships is no exception. Many regional PPP infrastructure projects have been greatly affected with bid deadlines extended for new projects, ongoing projects facing interruptions in supply chain, and operational projects experiencing considerable revenue generation challenges.

The 2nd PPP MENA Forum will present a great opportunity for all stakeholders involved to come together and truly come up with innovative solutions that will lead to sustainable and resilient PPPs in order to mitigate the impact of Covid-19.
