KAMPALA - The state minister for finance Gabriel Adjedra has revealed that Uganda will host the first high-level inaugural Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) conference focused on infrastructural development.

Adjedra noted that the event will provide a platform for Africa governments to pitch country projects and private sector players will have an opportunity to identify critical infrastructure projects for investment.

"Greater emphasis will be on the Uganda infrastructure projects specifically in energy, housing, health, agriculture, works, and transport," Adjedra explained.

In a pre-launch breakfast meeting at Serena Hotel in Kampala on Wednesday, Adjedra reported that the upcoming three-day conference is scheduled for September 16-18.

The event will run under the theme; ‘PPPs- Africa's next big thing, in focus: people first principles in support of UN-SDGs.'

The conference is organised by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the government of Uganda.
