About the conference

Public Private Partnership Commission under the Ministry of Finance in partnership with Africa Public Private Partnerships Network, the World Association of Public Private Partnerships (WAPPP) and the PPP forum for Africa has organized a three-day High-Level International conference focusing on People First Principles in Support of UN-sustainable Development Goals.

The conference will run from the 24th to 26th February 2020 at the Bingu International Convention Centre in Lilongwe.
