In the last three years decreased availability of financing, as well as the cautious approach on the part of the lenders have led to a considerable increase in the role played by Latin-American governments in supporting their public-private partnerships (PPP) programs through different mechanisms. Governments have promoted investment (private, hybrid and pension funds), guarantee, and subsidy funds, and innovative financial products. They also introduced changes in PPP legislation, rules, and contracts.

The conference will gather high level officials from 15 Latin American countries who are responsible for PPPs, as well as concessionaires, fund managers, banks, multilateral agencies, and academia.

The discussions will focus on lessons learned about the different mechanisms implemented by governments to support their PPP programs in order to mitigate the negative effects of the global financial crisis.
