The PPP Challenge by Stratbase Research Team

The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Program has been highlighted by the current administration as a key component in its socio-economic agenda. The country’s infrastructure, often described as “rickety” and sub-standard, is a major turn-off for investors who need an efficient and reliable environment that will set-up a reasonably predictable and acceptable profit for their business. Though this is not the only factor for investment decisions, it is a deal-breaker.  Having well-built infrastructure is a national aset that is said to bring direct and durable benefits to all sectors and robust enough to support the demand of a fast growing population for more opportunities.  As a strategy, the PNoy Administration aims to substantially upgrade infrastructure standards by building the most important projects in partnership with the private sector. this wil enable government to tap of big private industries with minmal or no expense to government.
