PPPAmericas 2011 will analyze public-private partnerships experiences

Basic infrastructure and transport: key sectors for public-private investment in Latin America and the Caribbean

Basic infrastructure and transport are the most promising sectors for public-private partnerships (PPPs), according to the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), member of the IDB Group. These will be the central topics at PPPAmericas, a conference organized by the MIF and the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit of Mexico on November 16-18, 2011, in the city of Guanajuato, Mexico.

PPPAmericas is the largest conference on public-private partnerships in the region, bringing together public sector officials, private sector representatives, and international experts in the field. The conference will focus on experiences and best practices in sectors such as urban transportation, waste management, and the construction and servicing of hospitals.

The opening plenary session will be headed by Steven J. Puig, Vice President for the Private Sector and Non-Sovereign Guaranteed Operation at the IDB; Gerardo Rodríguez Regordosa, Deputy Minister of Finance and Public Credit of Mexico, and Alexandre Meira da Rosa, Manager of the Infrastructure and Environment Sector at the IDB. The Governor of the State of Guanajuato, Juan Manuel Oliva Ramírez, will be a featured speaker at the conference.

The conference will also tackle experiences in project preparation and evaluation, alternatives that lead to an increase in value for money, risk management, and the establishment of frameworks in which both public and private sectors participate for infrastructure development and the provision of services.

This is the third edition of this annual conference organized by the MIF since 2008. As an experienced actor and partner with practical knowledge on a local level, the MIF has organized programs throughout the region to improve regulatory frameworks, increase the capacity of governments to develop and implement PPPs for infrastructure and basic services.
