A workshop on Public–Private Partnership in Infrastructure Development, jointly organised by the Ministry of Information and Sandhi Governance Institute, was opened at the Thingaha Hotel in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.
U Aung Hla Tun, Deputy Minister for Information, made the opening remarks at the ceremony. The deputy minister said it was necessary to seek investments and cooperation from private and public partners to implement large-scale infrastructure projects in the country, as the government alone cannot handle them. Responsible officials from all three organs of the government need to understand the advantages and disadvantages of the public-private partnership system, also known as the PPP model.
“I believe this workshop will provide all the participants with enough knowledge about the PPP system,” he said. He thanked the workshop sponsor Sandhi Governance Institute and requested it to hold similar workshops across the country.
Later, Director U Khine Win of the Sandhi Governance Institute explained the learning objectives of the workshop and the opening ceremony came to an end.
Following the opening ceremony, the workshop on the PPP system in infrastructure development was conducted. Professor Andre Palacios, Director U Khine Win (Sandhi Governance Institute), John Leber and Khatib Alam (IFC) discussed the PPP Regulatory Framework and Institutional Agreements, and replied to questions raised by the participants.
A total of 56 participants, including law makers from the Pyithu Hluttaw and the Amyotha Hluttaw, and senior officials from the Union Cabinet, Attorney General’s office, Auditor General’s office and the Nay Pyi Taw Council, took part in the one-day workshop.
