DAVAO CITY — At least four private firms are ready to present project proposals under the city‚Äôs public-private-partnership scheme in the next few weeks, a member of the local government‚Äôs PPP ordinance board toldBusinessWorld¬†on Monday.

  Malou G. Monteverde, former president of the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc., said the project proposals were mentioned during the board’s first meeting last week.

Ms. Monteverde said four proposals include conversion of waste to energy and development of the city’s Magsaysay Park.

The waste-to-energy proposal is to enhance the city’s landfill, which is projected to be filled up in a few years. She declined to name the project proponents or give additional details in order not to pre-empt the formal filing of their applications.

‚ÄúThere will be presentations in the coming weeks. The focus is on waste to energy, and hopefully we will find what is best for Davao under the PPP,‚ÄĚ Ms. Monteverde said.

Aside from the board members, city officials and the new set of Davao business chamber officers attended the meeting.

The city’s legislative council approved the PPP ordinance in August 2012.

Ms. Monteverde said the board will ensure transparency of all transactions and agreements and noted that all private groups willing to partner with the city will have to pass through a bidding and screening processes.
