C-NERGY Global Holdings, an investment advisory services firm, in partnership with the Ministry of Finance is organising the First Global Public- Private Partnership Conference in Ghana, from August 18 to 21.

The Conference which will be on the theme: ‘’Addressing Ghana’s Infrastructure Deficit; Moving from policy to Implementation –the Public-Partnership Alternative,’’ seeks to position Ghana as an attractive investment destination for Public-Private Partnerships.

A statement issued by C-NERGY Global Holdings and copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the Conference is positioned as a catalyst for the implementation of Public –Private Partnerships in the country, on the back of the broad legislative and institutional framework that had been developed over the last couple of years.

It said the Conference would offer a range of intentional investors and private sector participants, direct insight into the infrastructure investment priorities, and the economic development vision of the Government of Ghana.

“This will enable investors to begin strategic conversations with the Government in respect of building mutually beneficial Public-Private development partnerships,” it said.

According to the statement, the Conference would also provide senior public officials in Ghana, and in the ECOWAS region, the opportunity to gain practical knowledge on the formulation and implementation of Public- Private Partnerships, in the hope of igniting a proactive wave of proposals and initiatives from related sectors.

The statement said international experiences of other countries would be shared with the view that their lessons learnt would provide guidance to the Government, as it seeks to accelerate the Public-Private Partnership path to bridge the infrastructure gap.

The Conference has been structured in two parts. Part one is a scene-setting session with the Keynote Address from Government articulating its vision for the development and transformation of the economy, and the opportunity presented by Public- Private Partnerships.

As part of the activities of the Conference, delegates would be grouped into their sector area of interest, to review sector cases and identify Public-Partnership project development opportunities.
