McCreevy launches strategy to promote PPPs


The Minister for Finance, Mr Charlie McCreevy, has launched a National Communications Strategy for the development of Ireland's Public Private Partnership(PPP) process.

When Mr McCreevy launched the Framework for Public Private Partnerships a year ago he gave an undertaking to develop a communications and awareness strategy on PPPs.

The aim of the Communications Strategy, the Minister said, is toachieve a profile for Public Private Partnerships as a publicprocurement mechanism.

Mr McCreevy also said that work in delivering the PPP message hadalready begun with information seminars in Cork, Waterford, Athlone and Galway during 2002.

Similar events are planned for Dublin, Sligo and Limerick in the coming months.
