A HIGH LEVEL TECHNICAL SEMINAR ON PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS (PPP) FOR CONSULTING PRACTITIONERS INCLUDING PROFESSIONAL FIRMS, AND INVESTMENT BANKS
Malawi continues to face a huge infrastructure gap in the provision of essential services. The Government of Malawi promulgated the Public Private Partnership Act (2011) to accelerate the supply of infrastructure and delivery of public services through the medium of public private partnership (PPP) arrangements. The Act signaled a strong political will to leverage on private sector capabilities in financing, designing, risk management and operation of infrastructure and delivery of services. As PPPs increasingly play a role in bridging the infrastructure gap, the private sector Consultants and Advisors need to be empowered in the crucial role they play in providing transaction advisory and consultancy services in the selection, appraisal, risk analysis in the development and procurement cycles for PPP projects. Currently in-country private sector consultants are largely unfamiliar with PPP issues, which works against the country as scarce foreign exchange is expended on expensive foreign consultants. Local consultants play a pivotal role in supporting the development of PPP transactions during the entire evolution cycle. PPP projects are quite complex and do require competencies and capabilities in financial, economic, technical, legal, engineering and environmental spheres. The PPP Commission has an obligation to develop capabilities amongst the local consultants in order to ensure that the country has adequate consulting capacities to support PPP infrastructure transactions.
Accordingly, this High Level Technical Seminar on Public Private Partnerships (PPP) has been organized in order to build local capacity in favour of advisory and consultancy firms across a wide spectrum including but not limited to Accounting and Auditing, Engineering, Legal, Quantity Surveying, Architecture, Economics, Environmental, Business and Financial Analysis, Communication and ICT. The Seminar will ensure that participants’ technical skills and capabilities that will qualify them to deliver high quality advisory services related to PPPs are enhanced. The initiative will certainly promote skills transfer as local firms collaborate with international counterparts in executing PPP related assignments.
A unique training opportunity will be facilitated by Mr Edward (Ned) White, a highly decorated Global PPP Specialist from the United State of America.
