The Big 5 Saudi will host Zakir Ali Mohammed as one of the event's key speakers this year. Part of a broad complimentary and CPD certified education agenda dedicated to Educating and empowering construction professionals to achieve Saudi Vision 2030”, Zakir's workshop will take place on March 10 at 17:30-18:15 hrs.

Titled "PPP Framework for Infrastructure Program in Collaboration With Development Fund Agencies", the presentation will focus on:

  • PPP infrastructure development program - Vision 2030
  • Regulatory framework and institutions in developing economies
  • Governance, survey, planning, risk and opportunity sharing / change management

Here's what Zakir Ali Mohammed, Partner at M. K. Global Engineering Consultancies LLC, revealed us ahead of the workshop:

My presentation at The Big 5 Saudi 2019 will look at meeting the Public Private Partnership (PPP) implementation goal as a basis to understand the change in the economic environment. It will show how those transactions can be structured, and ways they can guide the mobilization of funds to help bridge infrastructure gaps in KSA and the GCC developing countries.
In fact, in 2017 the Saudi Government has announced a new policy to implement the National Transformation Plan (NTP) 2020, and various departments are being encouraged to train their staff. Further, the Government is now inviting Private Sector Businesses to build economies of various industries to collaborate in several programs within a PPP framework. 
Over the last two years (2017 – 2018) there have been various updates in the implementation of the regulation, with the aim of attracting international investors to diversify and expand their business activities in Saudi Arabia.
International Business Fund Managers & Infrastructure Leaders are all invited to participate to various programs to diversify Saudi Arabia's economy away from Oil & Gas, developing sectors such as Renewable Energy (Wind, Water, Solar), Tourism & Hospitality, Agriculture, Mining, Public Transport & Fright , Health, Education & Training, among others.
I look forward to meeting industry professionals during The Big 5 Saudi 2019 and provide them with insights on how to overcome key challenges, leverage on emerging opportunities and recommendations to implement PPP is Saudi Arabia.
