The predicted growth in uptake of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) / Public-Private Collaboration (PPC) contracts and structures in the region is well publicised.


This talk identifies some of the key drivers for utilisation of PPP in procuring assets before considering both upside opportunities and downside risks for both the public and private sector. 


Cautionary tales and positive steps to plan for successful PPP procurement and delivery will be discussed, with opportunity to consider the various remits for surveyors and other construction industry professionals within the ‘PPP framework’ of contracts and activities.
