Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum ‐ Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG) holds the third edition of the UAE Public Policy Forum. In partnership with the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Authority in UAE (FCSA), the forum will focus on the emerging accelerating dynamics for implementing the SDGs in the age of the “4th Industrial Revolution”. As a policy and knowledge platform, the forum will address policy implications, challenges, responses and future sustainable development prospects in the UAE. It will also discuss the potential policy challenges and responses in the UAE with the objective of drafting a high-level “policy roadmap” for the UAE’s 2020-2030.

As governments around the world seek to provide a growing population with the required public services and infrastructure, there is an increased interest in using Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) as a solution. In the UAE, the PPP framework that is evident ¬acknowledges and structures the role for government as one that ensures that social obligations are met through successful sector reforms and public investments alongside private sector engagement. This participatory model holds vast potential and requires policy adaptation to optimize the mutual benefits to the public and private sectors as well as citizens.
In a knowledge based economy, bench marking against best practice and adopting successful models for conducting public private partnerships is one way to ensure success. The UAE Public Policy Forum on Shaping the Future of Public Private Partnerships is a unique opportunity to hear from experts, policy makers, investors researchers and other stakeholders as they share their expertise about strategies, technology, policy implications and process associated with public private partnerships locally and globally.
The UAE Public Policy Forum is for key decision makers interested or involved in exploring public-private partnerships. Delegates will benefit from opportunities to network with the industry’s most influential professionals, experts, service providers and public leaders. Conference demographics includes Government, Private Sector and Public sector.
