Focus on public private partnership

The result of collaboration is usually more than the sum of its parts certainly where two sides work together with a win-win situation in prospect. It is not for nothing that the public and private sectors government and industry are increasingly joining forces to carry out major capital-intensive projects efficiently. The purpose of public-private partnership (PPP) is to generate added value. This is a goal that can be achieved if both government and private sector do what they are best at.

The PPP Knowledge Centre was established to initiate and stimulate the use of public-private partnerships. It acts as a kind of central information desk and adviser for all public-sector bodies interested in this kind of collaboration. The Knowledge Centre also provides general information to the private sector.
