Public-Private Partnerships

In December 2008 the Government of Zambia approved a Policy Framework for the implementation of PPPs in Zambia. This sets out Government’s strategic objectives to facilitate the provision of infrastructure and effective delivery of social services using PPP arrangements in order to ensure that economic growth is attained through enhanced productivity, improved competitiveness and wealth creation. Following the Policy pronouncement by Government, Parliament in August 2009, passed the PPP Act No. 14 of 2009 which aims to promote and facilitate the implementation of privately financed public infrastructure projects in Zambia.
