Course Description

In support of the current administration’s thrust to improve the regulatory and policy environment for investments, particularly those pertaining to Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) and infrastructure, the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) released last April 25 the “Revised Guidelines and Procedures for Entering into Joint Venture (JV) Agreements between Government and Private Entities”.

In this half-day webinar, we will explain and provide you the interpretations of this revised regulation which superseded the 2013 version. We will discuss JV -- as one of the most sought after PPP arrangements by GOCCs -- the evolution of its guidelines and procedures released in 2008, 2013 and 2023, legal ways to shorten the process, and the modified requirements and approval requisites.

Eliminate all confusions and risks when entering into joint venture agreements by attending this webinar. This is a must for private companies who want to do business with the government from national to local levels or vice versa.  Enroll on or before June 18 to avail of discount.
