Event Summary:

IPFA Middle East: Dubai: Can the Middle East Learn from the UK's PPP Experience?

The UK is currently experiencing some turmoil in the public private partnership sector. Parties are in dispute, projects are terminating and contractors and operators are often struggling to deliver what is expected of them profitably (evidenced to some extent by Carillion’s downfall).  Is this an indication that PPPs are actually not an appropriate model for delivery of public infrastructure and services by the private sector or is it just a case of the UK providing us with useful “lessons learned”?  This morning we will consider what has been causing some of that turmoil and what lessons can be learned in adopting the model in other jurisdictions to ensure that those problems don’t arise elsewhere.
