We, at AME Trade, would like to thank all who participated at the 9th Annual Africa PPP conference in Cape Town. A very special thank you to our speakers for sharing their expertise and our sponsors, DBSA, Fasken Martineau and Miranda & Associates for their support.
The event was officially opened by Bothwell Manikai, Principal, DBSA, with Debasish Mallick, Deputy Managing Director, Exim Bank of India, and the Hon. Mrs Manthabiseng Phohleli, Deputy Minister, Ministry of Health, Kingdom of Lesotho as the keynote speakers on the first day, who emphasised the importance of continuing to develop public private partnerships in Africa.
On the 2nd day, H.E. Honourable Senator Hadi Sirika Minister of State for Aviation, Federal Republic of Nigeria, provided an overview of some of the current PPP projects in Nigeria.
The event was host to 58 speakers and 152 participants from 31 countries, including representation from 10 African PPP units.
The productive practical training workshop on “Using project preparation tools to unlock the development of PPPs” provided technical assistance on how project preparation can benefit the development of PPPs.
We hope that the training workshops continue to increase capacity and skills development.
Interactive discussions and presentations highlighted challenges, looked at available funding mechanisms and provided insight into some successful PPP projects. In addition to this, a number of new, bankable PPP projects were showcased. Each project will bring us one step closer to closing the infrastructure gap.
We look forward to seeing you all at the 10th Africa PPP conference, where we aim to continue to provide a platform to enable Public and Private partners to create successful infrastructure projects in Africa, and to hear how the knowledge gained at this event has worked towards advancing infrastructure development.
