Why You Should Attend

8th Annual PPP and Project Financing

Dubai has been seeking other innovative solutions to finance its continued infrastructure investment programme. The passing of a law for PPPs will give Dubai more fiscal flexibility and a useful tool to deliver on its infrastructure ambitions. This, in conjunction with an average efficiency and “whole of life” cost saving of around 20% compared to traditional procurement explains the phenomenal growth of PPPs over the last 20 years, and why Dubai is now looking to this model.

At this prestigious two day conference you will be exploring the regulatory framework that is currently covering the PPP space in the MENA region. Here you will examine the various PPP models and how to select the most viable one for your project. You will also look at the various funding models at your disposal. The PPP Project Finance conferences will touch on Sukuks and bridging the funding gap with other alternative finance mechanisms.

Take part in the “8th Annual PPP and Project Financing” conference that will bring together accomplished speakers to analyse the issues with regards to the PPP framework development in the GCC region.
