Workshop on the InfraPPPnet Web Portal of the Infrastructure Financing and Public-Private Partnership Network of Asia and the Pacific
About this event
ESCAP is prioritizing the development of this digital platform to engage with member States through our web portal, which can effectively connect and interact with member States, development partners, and the private sector even at times of restricted movement during the COVID-19 pandemic. The InfraPPPnet is now ready after internal and external testing with the kind cooperation of PPP centres of Cambodia, China, Kazakhstan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Timor-Leste, and Astana International Financial Centre of Kazakhstan, World Green Organization, and HOPU Investment.
To address the socio-economic impact posed by COVID-19 in the region, ESCAP is committed to accelerating the application of public-private partnerships (PPP) to assist member States in alleviating public fiscal constraint and boost social and economic infrastructure resilience. The potential for PPPs will deliver greater and better public services through infrastructure to respond to the current pandemic and future natural disasters, and will effectively stimulate upstream and downstream industry development and create added job opportunities in the immediate term.
