For the purpose of strengthening the development of projects that will enable the Myanmar government to effectively implement the Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (MSDP), Project Bank notification was approved in November 2018 by the President Office of Myanmar to create clearer and more transparent pathway for investors interested in PPPs in Myanmar. The PPP Center within the MOPF will also be established to facilitate and implement PPP projects.
As PPP projects are usually large-scale and involved multiple parties, cross-sector coordination as well as a clear understanding of the risks associated with the projects and how they are allocated to the stakeholders and options to achieve their successful mitigation are critical for the bankability of projects and also to ensure successful completion of projects within the PPP framework.
Therefore, a group of panellists consisting of insurance broker & advisory firm, law firm, developer, lender and the consulting community will discuss key considerations for implementing PPP projects in Myanmar and share their professional experiences and key takeaways on PPP framework from different perspectives.
