Ghana hosts global PPP conference

PPPC-Nergy Global Holdings, an investment advisory services firm registered in South Africa, in partnership with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning is organizing the second Global Public-Private Partnership Conference in Kumasi.

The conference which took off on May 4 on the theme: “Building Capacity to Support Local Infrastructure Development through Public-Private Partnership (PPP),” will end on May 7.

It seeks to strengthen the skill sets within the District Assemblies across the sub-region, to implement PPP projects seamlessly for accelerated development.

Mr George Fosu, Director of C-Nergy Global said  this in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency on Thursday.

The conference is positioned to broaden practical knowledge and skills of key participants,  and to provide hands on practice that demystifies the structuring of PPPs in the sub-region, the statement said.

According to the statement, this is on the back of the broad legislative and institutional framework that has been developed within the last couple of years.

It seeks to build on the experiences shared in the previous year’s conference,  and to assess how far the country has come in implementing the key projects identified, and to address bottlenecks that impede the smooth implementation of PPPs at all levels.

It will further offer a range of international investors and private sector participants, direct insight into the infrastructure investment priorities, and the economic development vision of the Government of Ghana.
