The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center of the Philippines received its first global award from an organization that recognizes the best PPP institutions and projects globally for 17 years. The PPP Center won as the United Kingdom-Based Partnerships Bulletin’ “Best Central/Regional Government PPP Promoter” last June 2014 Partnerships Awards in London, England.
In August 2015, the PPP Center earned international recognition as The Asset’s Agency of the Year through its first Triple A Asia Infrastructure Awards 2015. The Asset recognized PPP Center for advancing the implementation of the Philippines’ PPP program and projects. It was also hailed for facilitating the approval and rolling out of several implementing agencies’ (IAs) PPP projects in 2014 and for awarding PPP contracts to the private sector. The Asset Editor-in-Chief, Mr.Daniel Yu, personally handed over the Agency of the Year Award to the PPP Center last November 24 in Manila.
The PPP Center was also awarded as IJGlobal’s “Asia Pacific Grantor of the Year” during the Asia Pacific Awards last March 24 in Singapore. This is in recognition of its role as a government body that advises awarding authorities on the procurement of infrastructure projects. IJGlobal Infrastructure Journal and Project Finance Magazine recognizes excellence, achievement and innovation in energy and infrastructure finance.
Since the launching of the PPP Program in 2010, it has been highly regarded internationally and locally by various investors and public and private organizations. These recognitions and citations serve as the Center’s inspiration in its continuous pursuit to produce a robust pipeline of PPP projects.
