The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center of the Philippines was one of the resource speakers at an exclusive trade mission organized by the Embassy of Italy in Manila, the Italian Trade Agency (ITA), and the Italian Chamber of Commerce held in Manila last March 8.

Director Maria Lerma Advincula of the PPP Center’s Project Development Service provided information on the Philippine PPP Program and its pipeline of projects. In addition, she was involved in a business-to-business activity to discuss possible entry points Italian companies can explore to take part and support the Philippine PPP program.

The trade mission was organized to create new investment opportunities between the two countries and showcase some of the best Italian companies active in the various infrastructure sectors such as water and renewable energy.
