Infrastructure development will be addressed at PPP conference
25 November 2010
Infrastructure development is to be on the cards as the second Africa Public Private Partnership Conference prepares to get underway.
It will take place on December 1st and 2nd in Tunis and it will look to enhance the work of the first meeting held last year, which attracted delegates from over 30 countries and 30 speakers.
One of the main aims of the convention will be strengthening public-private partnerships (PPPs), while the success of projects carried out in the region under this format will be assessed.
"The conference will provide a unique platform for networking and business development with senior industry representatives, ministerial advisors, legal advisors, financial sponsors and other professionals interested in initiating PPP projects," the African Development Bank stated.
It is hoped the conference will allow individuals the opportunity to find out what principles need to be established in order for PPPs to work.
The AfDB will also take part in the Conference of Parties, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change's highest decision-making authority.
