The 2nd OPPS Forum was held
The 2nd OPPS Forum meeting was held on September 18th at Trust City Conference Marunouchi for the purpose of exchange and information sharing among members. 10 regular member companies, 1 associate member company, and an observer, Mr. Miyasaka, from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Overseas Project Promotion Division participated.
Based on the first discussion, the secretariat explained the basic policy of the PPP project formation process and obtained the agreement of all the members. Next, we reported on the summary of the results of the questionnaire conducted after the last forum. We received responses on regions, countries, sectors, and PPP schemes that we were interested in, summarized our interests in the more than 20 PPP candidate projects introduced at the first forum, and responded to the opinions and requests we received. We also discussed the criteria for selecting PPP candidate projects.
After reporting on the PPP conference hosted by OPPS in relation to TICAD7 on August 27, the conclusion of MoU with the government of Ghana, a member company, and discussions with the government of Kenya, Index Consulting Co., Ltd., a regular member, announced the Ghana Road Concession. There was an overview and an introduction to how to proceed in the future. In addition, the secretariat explained the success/failure cases and factors in F/S and PPP commercialization, as well as the development of candidate project screening tools, and held a question-and-answer session.
In the future, OPPS will provide information based on the opinions received from member companies, and in addition to projects in Africa such as Ghana and Kenya, we will proceed to formulate projects that OPPS will work on in ASEAN.
The 3rd OPPS Forum will be held on Tuesday, November 19th.
