Promoting Public and Private Partnerships in the Philippines:
The “Promoting Public-Private Partnership in Infrastructure Development” Project aims to establish an enduring policy and institutional environment that promotes a transparent, competitive, and predictable environment for PPP infrastructure projects. It supports the government approach of harnessing private sector resources and expertise for infrastructure development through the PPP framework.
