Belarus announces three PPP projects for September 2015

Elena Daderkina, Coordinator of the European Union of the United Nations Development Programme (EU/UNDP) PPP project in Belarus, has announced plans to launch three PPP projects in September 2015.

Ms Daderkina stated:

"Before the end of this year, we will decide on three pilot projects in the field of public-private partnership for further pre-feasibility study. Their implementation is scheduled to begin in September 2015,"

"We are planning to extend the project until, at least, the end of next year. We still have the financial resources that will allow us to accomplish what we have planned. We are also discussing the issues of additional funding."

The EU/UNDP has 61 projects to be developed, it is expected that the selection of the three projects will be carried out in two phases. In the first phase 10 projects will be pre-selected. Finally three projects will be selected to be issued by September 2015.

According to Elena Daderkina, the existing legal framework in Belarus will be sufficient if all PPP mechanisms in contracts are spelled out correctly. Belarus' draft public private partnership (PPP) law is expected to go to the national Parliament in early 2015.

UNDP works on a local and regional level to facilitate PPPs to open new opportunities for establishing cooperation and creating linkages between relevant experts, communities of practitioners and local authorities, among others, on a horizontal level.
