The NEDA Regional Office in Central Visayas (NRO VII) together with the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center, launched the PPP Knowledge Corner last May 8.
The PPP Knowledge Corner, which houses PPP publications and information materials, aims to promote the PPP scheme in funding government projects in Central Visayas.
The launch was part of the NEDA and PPP Center’s joint initiative of establishing PPP Knowledge Corners in all NEDA Regional Offices (NROs) nationwide.
Representatives from local government units, regional line agencies, government-owned and controlled corporations, and members of the private sector in Central Visayas were present at the event.
Regional Development Council Chair Kenneth Cobonpue and NEDA Assistant Secretary Mercedita Sombilla both served as keynote speakers.
Meanwhile, a comprehensive discussion on PPP matters was conducted by Undersecretary Ferdinand Pecson, followed by an open forum.
The PPP Knowledge Corner is located at the ground floor of NRO VII Building Government Center, Sudlon, Lahug, Cebu City.
