What I like about the Africa PPP event is the enthusiasm of the banking sector to invest in PPPs and the expertise of the transactions advisers and that it covers the whole life cycle of the PPP project.
The event gave us the opportunity to meet with the decision makers and champions from all the African countries that are here in one conference - that really attracted us to be involved and partner with Africa PPP Conference.
“PPPs are still very new in Nigeria and most developing countries. This forum is an assemblage of so many professionals from different parts of the world who have spent several years structuring these transactions.”
“I think this PPP event is very important for one main reason: it is to help people understand the difference between the actual risk to doing business in Africa compared to the perceived risk of doing business in Africa.”
“It is an important platform, indeed, for knowledge sharing and also sharing the best practice; and more importantly, helping to rectify the current PPP’s under a better plan and design of the planned PPP’s in Africa. “
“This particular event is a premier event and an event that has been held consistently for a number of years, so we find that in terms of engagement, it’s very good and the level of delegates is again very good.’’
“This PPP event is very important. For example, meeting the program manager for PPIAF has had huge benefits for my country. I am also able to meet other experts and peers for experience and knowledge sharing.”
“The quality of discussions has been excellent. I saw there were ministerial people and parliamentarians in attendance and it is that calibre of people that attend these particular conferences and they come here to learn and to be able to go back to their countries .”
“The PPP event, for me, rallies a lot of people together. You find the technical practitioners coming, you find investors coming, and you find other entities such as transaction advisors and other consultants that convey here. So at this event the technical people are always able to talk to each other and there are presentations so that they can learn from each other.”
