“Excellent course for anyone involved in PPP. Highly recommended. Excellent course director!” said Beverly Nelson, the project manager for PNG Ports Corporation.

This workshop provides sector-by-sector analysis of PPP models and structures, covering infrastructure, transportation, energy, healthcare, housing, water & waste, finance & economic affairs, IT & telecom, aviation, defence, commerce and other relevant industries. At the end of the workshop, participants will construct and use a real PPP model based on a real example by using Excel.


We need new infrastructure. Roads, airports, schools, hospitals and housing: the list is enormous and growing. Yet severely limited budgets, economic uncertainty caused by volatile commodity prices, and deficits continue to prevent government at all levels from delivering the kinds of structural change that has always been needed.

In response, some countries have developed relatively successful PPP programmes - similar in many ways yet with specific national characteristics. Challenges remain throughout each region and are intensifying in the current environment. Merely grasping the concepts of PPP does not do justice to our great responsibility of having an ownership in the country’s future. We already know what we need to do, now is the time to really discover HOW.

This master class aims to do just that. Beginning with an in-depth understanding of how PPPs work, from financial, commercial, project & legal aspects, we seek to push our participants to innovate with real life case studies, group discussions and technical evaluation.
