Africa needs new infrastructure. The Gulf faces unique and growing financial challenges. The population is growing, and there is a clear need for more and better infrastructure to match. Roads, airports, schools, hospitals and housing: the list is enormous and growing. Yet severely limited budgets and deficits continue to prevent government at all levels from delivering the kinds of structural change that has always been needed. In Middle East, however, some countries in the region have developed relatively successful PPP programmes – similar in many ways yet with specific national characteristics. Challenges remain throughout the 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 our nation’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.
