Syed Afsor H. Uddin, CEO of PPP Authority welcomed everyone in his speech and presented an overview of G2G Partnership Policy published by the Bangladesh Government. He mentioned that PPP Authority, on the instructions of the Board of Governors chaired by the honorable Prime Minister, proposed the “Policy for Implementing PPP Projects through Government to Government (G2G) Partnership, 2017” (the G2G Policy) which has been approved by the honorable Prime Minister as the Chairperson of the Board of Governors for PPP Authority and subsequently it has been gazzeted on 8 June 2017. While developing the draft policy, preliminary discussions and consultations have been held with government agencies for receiving feedback on the outlook and framework of the suggested arrangements as laid out in the draft document. The government of Japan expressed its keen interest in the Bangladesh PPP program and showed early interest in working closely with the Bangladesh Government in a G2G Partnership basis. Syed stated that in line with the G2G Policy, the Government of Bangladesh via Prime Minister’s Office through Economic Relations Division (ERD), Ministry of Finance requested Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), Government of Japan to sign the Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC). Subsequently, MLIT confirmed to sign the first PPP G2G Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the PPP Authority as per Section 6 of the G2G Policy.

Bangladesh enjoys strong diplomatic ties with Japan and there is a long history of friendship. There is an extensive bilateral program in place for the provision of Japanese financial and technical support. Japan also has extensive experience of promoting and implementing successful PPP projects especially on complex civil engineering issues. Interest from Japan on Bangladesh’s proposed G2G PPP Program provides strong reassurance of the interest in the concept demonstrating the wider interest to support enhanced infrastructure development in Bangladesh.
