Public private partnerships aren’t as prevalent in Western Australia as in other states. But with a new state government and a federal government keen to spend some of its infrastructure funds, could there be more opportunities for PPPs in WA? If so, how do we ensure the public interest is protected, and government gets a return on its investment through efficient infrastructure and a high standard of service delivery? Where are the pitfalls? What have been the lessons of the eastern seaboard? A breakfast meeting will try to help unlock some of the mystery of PPPs and discuss their pros and cons. Speakers include Ernst & Young (Melbourne) partner Darrin Grimsey (top), CEDA research director Michael Porter, and Minter Ellison (Melbourne) partner Fred Tinsley (below). Chaired by CPR Communications & Public Relations general manager WA Daniel Smith. From 7.15-9 am on December 10 at the PCEC, tickets priced at $58 CEDA members/$88 non-members.
