PPPs and Project Financing

With the recent passing of the PPP law in 2017, the government is making concerted efforts to make PPPs as one of their most effective vehicles to attract private sector participation in public services delivery and increase economic growth. PPP cells were created in both Sindh and Punjab provinces to tap private investment and increase managerial abilities for the provision of world class public infrastructure and service delivery. The construction of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a milestone that signifies that Pakistan is boosting its economy and transforming into a global hub of business and commerce. In consolidating Pakistanís growth trend, private sector involvement is vital for the development of an efficient and well developed infrastructure system as it will facilitate a competitive economy and augment socio-economic growth. The Government of Pakistan is committed to establishing a clear financial, legal and administrative framework to facilitate public private partnerships, as well as, explore other forms of financing to accelerate the provision of infrastructure.

At this prestigious two day conference you will be exploring the crucial areas that are essential to the PPP and infrastructure sphere in Pakistan. Explore significant approaches such as alternative financing methods, legal and procurement issues, project financing, as well as, the current international best practices that can be used to address infrastructure challenges in the country.

With the growing challenge of attracting private investments into the country, this conference will cover groundbreaking methods to reinforce private participation in public projects. Furthermore, we will also highlight the latest PPP and major infrastructure projects that hold promise to the region.
