The Philippines’ PPP programme has been identified as the way to tackle much needed infrastructure development, supported by relevant economic and regulatory reforms, greater transparency and good governance. 2011 closed with the successful bidding of the first PPP road project valued at £ 22.8M, and January 2012 kicked off with the tender for PPP school buildings project. Under its PPP initiative, the government is determined to catch up on much needed investment in transport infrastructure and is keen on approaching this in a clear and transparent manner. It has also set aside budgets for right-of-way acquisitions on several infrastructure projects and established the PPP Centre with initial funds to support project development and monitoring.
The projects offer opportunities for UK products, services and expertise that can be accessed by participating in the bidding process or tapping supply chain opportunities through direct supply opportunities, or partnerships. Opportunities can be categorized into two main areas, which are; Infrastructure that includes planning, construction, maintenance and equipment; and, Specialist Expertise in project management, consultancy, financing and insurance.
