PPPs in China


The One Belt One Road initiative aims to boost trade and stimulate economic growth across Asia and beyond. It intends to build vast amounts of infrastructure to connect approximately 60 countries, primarily in Asia and Europe, by both land and sea. It will not only encompass the building of roads, but also includes bridges, pipelines and ports and is estimated to be one of the largest infrastructure and investment mega-projects in history.

China will promote the use of public private partnership (PPP) contracts in countries involved in its Belt and Road infrastructure initiative, state-run news agency Xinhua has said (16 January 2017).


Supporting Global Interest In The Chinese PPP Market 

The APMG PPP Certification program has been designed to improve the quality of PPPs worldwide and is already playing an important role in enhancing knowledge and establishing good practices for PPP professionals in China and across the globe.

On November 1, 2017, the China Public Private Partnerships Centre (CPPPC) and the World Bank Group (WBG) signed a memorandum of understanding stating that both parties will work together regarding PPPs and promoting CP3P in China to enhance the professional competence of PPP practitioners.  As a result, chapter 1 of the PPP Certification Guide has been translated into Chinese and is available to download free of charge here. The CP3P Foundation exam has also been translated into Chinese, allowing students the opportunity to learn and be tested in their native language.

APMG appointed the Institution of Public Private Partnership (IPPP) to undertake the official Chinese translation. The translation team members are also certified trainers of TPMA Academy, equipped with over 40 years of experience in large-scale infrastructure project management joined together to contribute to the development of PPPs in China.

The Glossary and Foreword of the official Chinese version of the PPP guide has been reviewed by the China Public Private Partnerships Centre (CPPPC).
