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

 
 
The state minister for finance Gabriel Adjedra has revealed that Uganda will host the 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 set for September 16 to 18.
 
The event will run on the theme; ‘PPPs- Africa's next big thing, in focus: people first principles in support of UN-SDGs.'
 
The conference is organized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the government of Uganda.
 
UNECE vice-chair bureau of the working party on PPPs Beatrice Florah Ikilai said the event will attract over 50 seasoned infrastructure experts and speakers worldwide.
 
"Opportunities will be available for side room B2B meetings, networking with project owners, building stronger partnerships critical in bridging Africa's infrastructure gap.
