Roundtable on Public-Private Partnerships (PPP)

Geospatial infrastructure, national or international, involves multiple stakeholders, huge amount of data, and naturally needs big investments and human resource support from the government. National Geospatial Information Agencies (NGIOs) are the primary agencies responsible for delivering authentic, accurate and updated spatial data to various line ministries, which not only helps in national development plan, but also keep a close eye for reviewing and assessing its progress.

One of the ways for NGIOs to leverage from the private sector in delivering key benefits for national development plan is to form a PPP ventures. These PPPs may focus on delivering National Geospatial Platform as a Service to the ministries and citizens for a variety of purposes, such as for Content and Technology, Information Services, Capacity Development and Dissemination as well as for Standards, Policies and Legal considerations.

Association with private sector through PPP allows the skills and assets of each sector (public and private) to be shared to improve operational efficiency for the benefit of the general public. This will also ensure long-term sustainability of such infrastructure.

The exclusive roundtable on Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) aims to explore new opportunities for PPP in geospatial industry, and ways to bring the technology closer to society. The roundtable shall feature top representatives from national geospatial agencies, business leaders and major users in the region.
