On Wednesday, 25th January, Al Tamimi & Company's Project Group held an interactive and informative seminar entitled Public Private Partnerships – A Regional Perspective and Key Considerations.
With the growing interest and importance of Public Private Partnerships, the seminar provided an overview on key jurisdictions (Kuwait, Egypt, KSA and the UAE), and gave the attendees an opportunity to hear from industry experts.
The panel sessions covered practical insights and considerations on the following areas:
• Regulatory regimes and impact
• Project finance issues under local laws
• Future developments
• Regional opportunities
• Lessons from recent projects
• Economic factors influencing project growth
We were also fortunate to have guest speakers Ed James, Director of Content & Analysis, MEED Projects and Duncan Allison, General Manager Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, who shared their expert perspective on the current and future state of the Projects Market and PPP landscape in the region.
