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.

“PPP’s are hard, there is no doubt about that. Bidding for PPP actually cost a lot of money. The Philippine government has awarded over 10 PPP projects and have another 14 in the pipeline, that’s a magnificent achievement. Show me any other ASEAN neighbor who has done that. There is none.
 
So the Philippines in the region is viewed as sort of best in class in traversing their PPP agenda and this current government is very supportive of that and will continue to be.”

Minister-Counsellor and Senior Trade Commissioner
