|Capacity Building Program for APEC Member Economies’ Infrastructure Development:
Training Workshop on Public-Private Partnership (PPP)
Well-designed, sustainable and resilient infrastructure enhances economic growth, boosts productivity and promotes job creation. Regional infrastructure also facilitates smooth flow of goods, services and people across borders, improves regional connectivity and promotes sustainable development. Given the huge infrastructure gap and limited financial resources of governments in the APEC region, Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) offers a viable alternative to traditional procurement methods to support infrastructure development. PPP expands public infrastructure supply, improves service quality, maximizes the use of private sector capital and know-how, lowers lifecycle costing of a project and alleviates budget constraints through sharing of risks and responsibilities.
APEC is an important platform for economic cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region. Cooperation on infrastructure investment and financing has been identified as an important policy theme for the APEC Finance Ministers’ Meeting (FMM) in 2014. Following Korea’s proposal for launching a capacity building training program for officials in charge of infrastructure development in member economies, Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Center (AFDC) will collaborate with the KDI School of Public Policy and Management and implement a series of training programs.
This workshop is one of the activities to promote capacity building on infrastructure investment and financing. It will offer participants of APEC member economies an invaluable opportunity to explore not only the in-depth knowledge about PPP modality but also some economies’ experiences and practices on infrastructures investment and financing.
