11:30 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Exploring the prospects for road development projects and overcoming challenges faced when financing projects across East Africa

The desire of greater efficiency and better services, as well as the limited volume of public resources available to finance such services are now increasingly leading governments to enhance public-private partnerships approach. In order for more PPPs to emerge in Africa, countries need to improve the business environment.
At present serious constraints exist in many countries. These constraints are inadequate legal and regulatory framework for PPPs, lack of technical skills to manage PPP programmes and projects, unfavourable investor perception of country risk, Africa’s limited role in global trade and investment, small market size, limited infrastructure and limited financial markets.
This session will bring together major stakeholders in the region to discuss how overcome these challenges and how to build the right environment to ensure the building of these projects are followed through.
