Dubai is taking further measures to build a productive ecosystem for public-private partnerships.

The emirate will host local and international investors at the Dubai International Public-Private Partnership Conference (DIPPPC) in October as part of Expo 2020.

The highly anticipated event aims to foster a dialogue on partnership opportunities between the public and private sectors, and explore innovative approaches for collaboration with local and international investors.

The conference will bring together leading government entities such as Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Dubai Municipality (DM) and the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) to discuss how they can create an environment that promotes winning partnerships in Dubai.

"We aim to transform Dubai into one of the world’s most prominent destinations for successful PPPs in investment, contracting, consulting, infrastructure development and other vital areas related to the development of government projects," said Abdulrahman Saleh Al Saleh, Director General of the Dubai Government’s Department of Finance (DOF).
