Regional: Knowledge Sharing on Infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships in Asia

Sovereign Project | 42105-012

Summary

ADB has identified Public Private Partnership (PPP) approach in its Long Term Strategic Framework (LTSF) as an important tool to enable the Developing Member Countries (DMCs) to increase investments for the development of infrastructure. The Government of the Republic of Korea and ADB have established a Knowledge Partnership Fund to support sharing experience, information and knowledge in the Asia and Pacific region. The main goal is to strengthen the capacity of DMCs by sharing knowledge and experience of successful PPP country framework and its application to develop infrastructure PPP projects. Strengthening the capacities of the DMCs in PPP equips them to implement PPP projects that will benefit both infrastructure and economic development within the DMCs.
