Executive Summary 

– Making Deals and Developing Win-Win Strategies between the Private and Public Sector –

Following the success of various workshops on PPPs that we have been running across Africa in the past 3 years, Neoedge is proud to announce the maiden edition of Africa PPP Investment and Development Summit 2014 (APIDS 2014) in Accra, Ghana, West Africa.

Public Private Partnerships is vital in addressing the infrastructure challenges that Africa face, however it has to be administered correctly. Projects bankability, capacity building and government commitment are the few must have in every successful PPPs.

In this summit we will be gathering senior officials from public sectors across the globe and PPPs experts from the global arena. Our hope is that capacity will be built as international best practices are demonstrated in various case studies. At the same time we believe that this summit will be an excellent platform for both public and private sector to explore potential collaborations in meeting Africa needs via Public Private Partnerships.

The following key themes on PPPs Investment and Development will be addressed in-depth with Case Studies:

  • Latest update on PPPs project globally
  • Latest PPPs trend in Africa – uniquely Africa
  • PPPs application for transport sector (road, rail, airport, ports, etc)
  • PPPs application for social infrastructure sector (school, hospitals, etc)
  • Water and power sectors (utilities)
  • Financing Infrastructure Projects and Project Finance
  • Alternative Finance
  • Crafting feasible deals
  • Bankability of PPPs projects
  • Legislative framework and government support
  • PPPs procurement and fraud prevention
  • Project Management
  • Contract Managements
  • Tariffs and regulations
  • Risk Identification, Mitigation and Management

Africa is unique. It is crucial to understand the continent where the economy has boomed for the past decade. As the economy boomed the needs for infrastructure growth is inevitable. Partnership with the private sector to meet these infrastructure demand is given, however the question is whether the project will be able to meet the needs of public sector and commercially viable for the private sector. The opportunity is huge if we can strike a balance between public needs and commercial viability of a project. This is what we are trying to achieve in this summit.

For the past 3 years we had received requests from many countries in Africa to a conference that would gather both public and private sectors in order to put everyone in the same page. The Africa PPPs Investment and Development Summit (APIDS) 2014 will provide this platform and enable the discussion needed to get PPPs initiatives in Africa moving.

West Africa has been selected as venue of this summit as the country is in the early stage of PPPs implementation and presents many investment opportunities for various entities with expertise in PPPs.
