The Philippines boasts of a long experience of public-private partnership (PPP) initiatives, which serves as a rich basis for future investments. With its aggressive PPP promotion, the government was and is able to attract private partners to invest not only in traditional infrastructure projects, such as power, transportation, and water sectors, but also in non-traditional infrastructure and development sectors, such as information and communications technology, health, and property development.
Through the partnership, the power crisis in the early 1990s was addressed. The partnership likewise helped improve road network quality, transport linkages and social services. To date, approximately US$ 19.5 billion in investment has already been generated since its inception.
Today, PPP can be credited in helping realize various development projects both at the national and local levels across various infrastructure sectors.
