*Enabling and "Future-Proofing" LGU PPPs*

by *Atty. Alberto C. Agra*

*During his first State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Aquino
highlighted Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) as a key strategy of his
administration. Six years hence, about 12 projects have been awarded and
are mostly under construction. A number of questions have been raised,
specifically on why there seem to be too few projects approved.*

*Former Acting Justice Secretary Atty. Alberto C. Agra will present his
work entitled Enabling and "Future-Proofing" LGU PPPs. He will provide an
overview of the critical issues surrounding PPPs in the Philippines. Atty.
Agra will point out that in order to navigate through these critical
issues, there has to be a cogent framework that will ensure the stability,
consistency, transparency, integrity, accountability, reliability, and
enforceability of PPP contracts. He will attempt to identify the main
features any well-drafted PPP contract should clearly spell out. He will
propose a seven-step process of reframing LGU PPPs, that will help
“future-proof” PPP contracts and promote public welfare.*

Mr. Jesse Ang. will provide a discussion of Atty. Agra’s observations, as
well as insights on the role of the IFC in PPPs in the Philippines.
