UK helping Nepal with PPPs

The UK’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCO) is helping Nepal develop and deliver a PPP programme.

The government is set to look for advisors to help support the Office of the Investment Board of Nepal (OIBN) with the acceleration of public and private investment into infrastructure.

The advisors must have expertise in delivering PPPs worth over $60m - and will help with the technical screening, procuring and transaction services.

Nepal is set to introduce a new Green Growth Nepal programme which is in design and has an anticipated start date of June 2024.

Earlier this year, Nepal announced plans to use PPP to deliver a maternity hospital project.
