DAP is currently conducting a second round of the Business Case Development Fundamentals and Workshop at Imperial Palace Suites in Quezon City.

Sponsored by the British government through its British Embassy in Manila, this capacity-development training for the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center and its partner implementing agencies supports the strengthening of PPP in the Philippines.

The first two sessions last November 14 and 15 equipped the participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to develop robust and viable business cases and further build up their core competencies in managing PPP projects.

The last day, set on November 25, will be devoted to business case presentation and panel critiquing, which will allow the participants to apply the parameters in developing and operating PPP projects such as approaches on project planning, management, facilitation, operation, monitoring, and evaluation.

Attending agencies are the Department of Agriculture, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Finance, Department of Justice, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Tourism, Department of Transportation and Communications, Clark Development Corporation, Laguna Lake Development Authority, National Economic and Development Authority, and Securities and Exchange Commission.

The PPP Center recognizes the indispensable role of the private sector in pursuing national growth. It is this core principle that pushes the government to strive for a more dynamic and collaborative undertaking through the PPP scheme.
