Dear industry colleagues

SIGN UP TODAY !

Executive workshop on Effective Concession Agreements for Ports and Terminals

 

24-25 April, 2017; Singapore

18-19 September, 2017; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

About the Course                           

This two days executive workshop is targeted to enhance the appreciation and understanding about framework of the Concession Agreements between decision makers and supporters from Port & Terminals and Concession granting authorities. The workshop aims to encompass entire spectrum of concession agreements – from identification of infrastructure development elements and private investment requirement to preparation of legal and financial framework in order to develop a transparent and bankable model concession agreement; defining the steps and process for inviting expression of interest to capturing concession agreement clauses which are attractive for project proponents, investors, financers and meeting the broader objectives and interests of the public, community and society.

Significance / relevance of the course

With a steady growth in world GDP and volume of international trade, substantial investment is required to enhance the cargo handling and hinterland connectivity with gateway ports. With ambitious plans for their ports and terminals; governments all over the world are increasingly encouraging and providing various incentives to investors and operators to build and expand Ports and Maritime infrastructure. Over a period of time, roles of the Government and public bodies have changed to remain landlord /owners of public assets – waterfront and port land. Private enterprises gradually increase their role in the ports by taking charge of financial and operational risks. In this process, Government and public bodies assume the roles of owners of land & waterfront and regulators of the port while private enterprises take on complete responsibility of Port operations. This course will attempt to provide an integrated approach to develop the main legal instrument – The Concession and implementation and execution of the Concession Agreement.
