A new wave of Public Private Partnerships (PPP) market development has been emerging in Korea since the introduction of the APMG PPP Program Guide in Seoul in June 2016. Following the launch of the APMG PPP Training Program in January this year by P3 Korea, the first CP3P ATO in Asia, many institutional organizations including Central Government, have shown huge interest in whether PPP knowledge and capability can contribute to their future growth and strategic success.
In response to the growing interest in the PPP market and requests from various sectors, the: “PPP SEMINAR ON MAJOR ASIAN PPP MARKET AND BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT" was held in Korea, on 26 June 2017. The event which was the first of its kind in Korea, was held in the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry Conference Hall in Seoul.
The first and most important thing to mention is that the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of Korean Government, is the official sponsor of this historic event. The key officer of the Ministry has expressed his appreciation of the event and has suggested visible support for its future development.
Approximately 150 delegates from a wide range of sectors, listened to enlightening speeches and presentations from four speakers, fellow Koreans and international visitors. APMG invited Euna Shim, a PPP Specialist from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), to attend the event. We were pleased to receive her gratitude for the rare opportunity to develop future business contacts in this global PPP arena.
Our vision is that P3Korea will be a powerful engine for PPP training, supporting the overall development of the global PPP industry.
