Public-private partnerships in the MENA region have seen a considerable growth across sectors, especially in the energy, infrastructure, healthcare, transportation, and education sectors. Recently, several PPP investment opportunities have been launched in the region to ensure the delivery of key services and drive socio-economic development. Over 240 PPP projects worth an estimated US$223 billion are under development in the MENA, focusing on the healthcare, infrastructure, power, and construction sectors.

Despite the increase in the investment opportunities and rise in PPP projects, the sector still faces some key challenges including effective contractual model, new forms of project finances, strong regulatory framework and policies that need to be developed by the government to further drive partnerships with the private sector.

In line with this, the 3rd PPP MENA Forum will focus on the integration of new and innovative partnership models and launch of new projects for the region’s socio-economic growth. The forum will discuss effective policies for infrastructure PPP projects, governance and transparency, security of the regulatory framework, long-term private funding for national projects, and global PPP laws and best practices. The Forum will host over 300 regional and international senior PPP professionals, experts, and project owners, developers, operators, consultants, investors, and finance institutions.
