He said that the PPP has become a realty thanks to the directives of HH The Amir and his trust in the private sector, affirming that HH The Amir emphasized in various occasions the role of the private sector in the economic development and its contribution in the mega projects in the future, , as well as his directives for the preparation of a Public-Private Partnership Law.
Sheikh Khalifa also praised the government’s interest in achieving the PPP, noting that several projects have recently been launched by the Technical Committee of the Ministerial Group for Stimulating the Private Sector, covering many sectors such as education, food security and others.
