IFFO collaborates with IFC and Harvard on PPP and Project Finance Training Program and announces 13 new partners

The HKMA Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office (IFFO) is hosting a Senior Executive Training Program from 31 July to 4 August on Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) and Project Finance. This tailored training, now running in its ninth year, is organised by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in partnership with the Harvard Kennedy School (Harvard). IFFO is pleased to host this year’s Asia-Pacific session in Hong Kong.

The Program’s objective is to advance the dialogue on PPPs and Project Finance to a broad group of experts and decision makers with a view to fostering the development of infrastructure projects that better address the needs of the population and governments. The Program is attended by 50 senior executives from institutional investors, development and policy banks, project developers and operators, as well as public officials from countries such as Bangladesh, China, India, Mongolia, Nepal, Thailand, and World Bank and IFC representatives with experience in advisory and investment areas.

The Program is another deliverable under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the HKMA and IFC in July last year. According to the MoU, both parties agree to cooperate to support capacity building with a view to promoting an efficient and conducive market environment for infrastructure financing.

Mr Eddie Yue, Deputy Chief Executive of the HKMA and Director of IFFO, said, “We are pleased to host this executive program with IFC and Harvard. This marks our second collaboration with IFC and continuous commitment in building capacity and knowledge of IFFO partners and other stakeholders. Collaborating with Harvard ensures a rich learning experience on various emerging issues on PPPs and project finance through interactive exchanges among academics, policymakers and industry experts."

IFC Director for East Asia and the Pacific Vivek Pathak said, “Appropriate policies and services can help countries build and manage modern infrastructure more efficiently and effectively. The World Bank Group will continue to support PPPs and create market conditions for sustainable infrastructure development along the Silk Road.”

IFFO is also pleased to announce that 13 more organisations have joined IFFO as partners. They are (in alphabetical order):

(1)       AustralianSuper

(2)       CGCOC Group (Hong Kong) Co., Limited

(3)       Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank

Mr Eddie Yue said, “It is encouraging that the number of IFFO partners has grown from 41 to over 70 in one year. This clearly demonstrates IFFO is well recognised as an effective collaboration platform bringing together key stakeholders in facilitating infrastructure investment and financing.”
