Here is a summary of the advantages PPP offers
PPPs are fast becoming accepted as a viable means of procuring and delivering the required modernisation of the development of new sugar.
They create a virtuous cycle of mutual benefit for all concerned and, in particular, private sector entities which are usually seen as sole benefactors and not as beneficiaries. Public sector takes care of the agriculture component while the private sector takes on the industrial component.
We believe they offer a smart alternative to traditional procurement methods and would like to see the public and private sectors doing more business together in this way. Delivering the PPP promise means delivering solutions that fund new developments and modernise existing ones.
