Building Public-Private Partnerships in Bhutan


At the beginning of July, a delegation of the Ministry of Finance in Bhutan visited Maastricht School of Management for a one week tailor made training to strengthen the capacity in Public Private Partnerships (PPP).

PPP is a new concept in Bhutan and a PPP unit was established under the Ministry of Finance to facilitate an effective implementation of PPP policy rules, regulations and projects. The tailor made training provided the delegation with skills and knowledge in how to select and implement viable and suitable PPP projects. The experience gained will help the ministry in achieving economic development of the country.

A busy program was put together for the delegation to make the most of their short visit to the Netherlands. The program contained:

  • Exposure visits/work visits to the Port of Rotterdam, Ministry of Finance and Kromhout Kazerne
  • PPP and impact investment lectures
  • Lectures on identifying strengths, weaknesses and main elements for follow up of implementation, planning and performance management.

The visit was part of a one-year tailor made training program funded by Nuffic. You can read more information about the one-year tailor made training here.

The PPP tailor made training program is developed through a grant from the Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP) from Nuffic. The OKP aims to contribute to a society’s sustainable and inclusive development by offering access to education and training to professionals and organizations.
