The first meeting of the Public-Private Partnership Network of Asia and the Pacific in the city of Guiyang, Guizhou Province, China, from 12-13 September 2018. It gathered more than 30 delegates, including the heads of PPP units from 22 countries in the region and experts from international organizations of UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), World Bank Group and Asia Development Bank. Delegates greatly benefit from sharing established good practices with other countries and engaging the private sector in addressing their infrastructure financing challenges.
On the morning of September 13, delegates from Asia-pacific countries visited Educational Facilities, Equipment and Logistics Outsourcing in Wudang District. The project is the first PPP project in the provincial education system. The project has been completed and put into operation since March, 2018. The scale will be a kindergarten of 24 classes that would accommodate 720 infants. The project innovated financing and operation mode and operated. In the case of limited short-term financial expenditure, the project achieves the goal of constructing new educational facilities, increasing educational resources, improving people's livelihood, effectively improving the school-running level of rural area, reliving the pressure of urban enrollment, and eventually promoting the balanced development of education.
During the visit, delegates were curious to find out the conditions of the facilities in the kindergarten, the number of students, the fees and charges, as well as the operation quality and performance appraisal of the project, and were particularly interested in the use of PPP model in schools, kindergartens and other areas important to people's livelihood. Before leaving, delegates wrote out their blessing to express their best wishes to Guizhou's children.
