Public Private Partnership Conference
Date: 30/October/2009
Location: Umayyad Congress Palace, Damascus

As part of its ongoing reform programme, the Syrian Arab Republic is expected to announce significant Public Private Partnership initiatives in the autumn.

In order to provide funding for some of Syria’s major infrastructure projects, Public Private Partnerships are seen as a major investment opportunity and new legislation is currently being drawn up by the Office of the Prime Minister, HE. Mr. Naji Otri, which will form the framework for PPP projects in Syria.

At the request of the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, HE Mr. Abdullah Dardari, the British Syrian Society is delighted to organise a “Public Private Partnership” Conference in Damascus to highlight PPP opportunities for investors.

The conference will focus on four key infrastructure sectors that have been identified by the Government for PPP including: Oil & Gas, Electricity, Social Housing and Transport. Ministers for each of these sectors will participate in the conference and will outline the PPP projects that are being offered for tender.

Leading international speakers will share the experience of other countries in PPP and senior industry figures will discuss the opportunities for the private sector.

We expect very high demand for this conference because of the potential business and investment opportunities associated with PPP.
