Public-Private Partnerships a Solution for Public Investment PDF Print E-mail

Pursuant to the Debt Managers series’ aim of keeping heads of debt management in the region abreast of pertinent developments, the 2012 Debt Managers Seminar focused on public-private partnerships (PPPs). This is in view of the growing attention being paid to alternative forms of infrastructure and social sector development financing and the resultant sovereign liabilities.


Speaking at the same event, the MEFMI Executive Director, Dr. Ellias Ngalande acknowledged the collaboration from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the South African Treasury, which provided facilitators for the Seminar. The Executive Director thanked Mozambique and the rest of the member states for their continuing support to MEFMI. He noted the potential role that PPPs, in addition to borrowing, can play in helping countries to address the perennial problem of inadequate financing for public investment.

Within the broad aim of the debt managers’ seminar series of keeping debt managers abreast of pertinent developments, the specific objectives of the seminar were:

• To enhance understanding of PPPs, including the related definitions, concepts, policies and principles;
• To discuss the legal, institutional and policy frameworks appropriate for more effective use and management of PPPs;
• To relate PPPs to the relevant national planning, budgeting and procurement processes; and,
• To present best practice for effective negotiation and management of PPPs, including through review of pertinent examples from the OECD, South Africa and selected case studies from the MEFMI region.

The Seminar was attended by heads of sovereign debt management offices and other senior Government officials dealing with public investments from ministries of finance and central banks. It was attended by 23 participants, of which 7 were female drawn from 10 of the 13 MEFMI member countries.

The Seminar was held from 22 to 24 October 2012, in Maputo, Mozambique. It was officially opened by Mozambique’s Permanent Secretary of Finance, Mr. Paulo Manhique.  He noted the growing regional interest in exploring alternative non-traditional sources of financing for development, including consideration of PPPs. Mr Manhique stressed the need to pay attention to fiscal risks associated with the different mechanisms of funding when formulating public debt policies and alternative financing strategies.
