2nd Global Entrepreneurship Forum
“Delivering Successful PPPs”
Over the last decade, the UAE has worked hard to improve the engineering quality and the service performance of its infrastructure. Part of this process has involved developing a forward-looking collaborative framework to integrate the private sector in its work, with very promising pilots currently underway.
The transition to PPPs represents an important shift in key operational practices and client-contractor relations: contractors are much more closely embedded in the agency’s organization and investment decisions, since they provide the inputs that assist asset managers in prioritizing maintenance budgets and scheduling works accordingly. Cooperation becomes thus even more important, not only between
road agencies and contractors, but also with other public authorities.
The Ministry of Infrastructure Development in partnership with the International Road Federation are is pleased to host this forum to help regional practitioners draw on the experiences of senior transportations professionals, public agency managers and financial specialists with experience in the design and implementation of PPP schemes adapted to the UAE’s economic and institutional environment.

The Forum is held in partnership with the UAE’s Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MOID) and the Federal Transport Authority. Additional agencies from the region will be invited to share their insights and roadmaps.
