The Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), with support from the PPP Center, is developing the Mount Data Lodge Project (the “Project”). The Project aims make the lodge a well-known tourist destination in the Mountain Province and to contribute in the revitalization of tourism in the area.
As part of initial stages of project development, TIEZA is conducting this preliminary market sounding activity to solicit insights and feedback on the project terms from interested private sector investors. This activity will run from May 3 – 8, 2021 and is facilitated through an online form or one-on-one meetings with the PPP Center.
The objectives of the market sounding activity are as follows:
- Provide a brief background and envisioned scope of the Project to the potential private sector participants;
- Gauge the interest of the private sector to partner with TIEZA for undertaking the Project as a PPP;
- Determine the level of interest, capability, and experience of the private sector (including lenders) to undertake the Project;
- Identify potential issues or problems that may affect the Project, particularly its viability;
- Obtain insights from the private sector, including the lenders, on how to make the Project more attractive and bankable; and
- Understand key considerations of the private sector regarding their potential involvement in the Project in partnership with TIEZA.
For those interested to participate in the market sounding activity, please sign-up by clicking the Registration Form link below:
