The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center presented the opportunities for international partners to participate in the Philippine PPP water sector during the 2022 Philippines-Spain Multilateral Partnership for Development event held at the Fairmont Hotel Makati last November 9, 2022.

These were discussed within the context of the Philippine PPP Program and the mandates of the Center.

In attendance were 23 Spanish companies with expertise in the fields of construction, engineering, water and sanitation, transportation, energy and tourism, as well as representatives of the Asian Development Bank and the Philippine Government.

The event was organized by ICEX-Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Spain in the Philippines.
