250 representatives of ministries and large Algerian corporations recently gathered for a special event hosted by GE in country.

A key point of discussion was on the significance of public-private partnerships (PPPs) where a private entity assumes a substantial financial, technical and operational risk in the design, financing, building and operation of a project in conjunction with a public body in that country.
