Apart from several government ministers, the event will be witnessed by numerous potential investors, as well as representatives from the World Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the International Finance Corporation, the European Investment Bank and the African Export and Import Bank.
Ater Hannoura, who heads the Finance Ministry’s PPP department, said the conference will last two days, during which 19 to 20 PPP projects will be presented for both the current and future fiscal years.
