Public Private Partnerships (PPP) are increasingly acknowledged as providing a direct and mutually beneficial means of attracting and retaining investment and expertise from the private to the public sector particularly in infrastructure development. Evaluations of the success of AfDB-financed infrastructure projects have underscored the dual need for sufficient skills and capacities to design and manage PPP projects and an enabling environment to sustainably attract private investments.

In response to demand for PPP capacity development programmes for Bank staff, AfDB Board members and Regional Member countries, the Africa Development Institute Selected the services of a high performing consultant AME Trade ltd to assist in the preparation and delivery of high quality CPD Certified capacity development seminars on PPPs in 2016.

AME Trade Ltd has an established relationship with the Africa Development Bank over many years, as principal sponsors and key delivery partners of the annual Africa PPP Conference and Showcase.
