It is heartening to see the encouraging response from various participants so far."

The past two Public Private Partnership Programs held by Sharjah Tatweer Forum have been deemed successful in line with international standards and best practices and also on basis of the testimonials and positive feedback received from all the participants. The programme has also succeeded in advancing cooperation between the private and public sectors and encouraging the private sector to take up a greater role in the economic and social activities of the Emirate.

The third Public Private Partnership Programme will continue until June with six sessions that will include activities ranging from field visits, analytical exercises and team work in addition to lectures by experts and guest speakers.
