The development of the new PPP law is part of a project involving the African Legal Support Facility.
Nigel Boardman and the team at Slaughter & May will undertake a comprehensive review of the existing PPP and investment framework in order to produce, and to help implement, recommendations for the advancement of that framework.
They will also provide PPP training programmes to government officials and local lawyers, as well giving ad hoc advice to the Malawi Government as it implements the new PPP regime.
The firm will assist the Government in its aim to expand and improve infrastructure and public services, and thereby stimulate economic growth and reduce poverty.
This is expected to be ongoing until November 2016.
We have recently reported that the government of Tanzania had presented the PPP Amendment Bill, 2014 to the parliament. The bill seeks to put in place a conducive environment for implementation of several projects between the public and private sectors in the country.
