Airport Public Private Partnership Summit, KSA

December 6th & 7th, 2017
Saudi Arabia

Challenging economic conditions due to the low oil price environment in the GCC region are forcing countries to focus on economic diversity and to move away from the dependency of oil. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is looking to privatise its infrastructure, improve efficiency and boost employment.

Saudi Arabia, in the midst of a massive reform programme to cut its dependence on oil revenues, said it plans to transfer ownership of its airports to its sovereign wealth fund with the view to privatise them. Each airport will be transferred to a separate company ahead of being sold off and Saudi Arabia has already delegated more work for its airports to the private sector in recent years.

The current expansion of the King Abdulaziz International Airport in the port city of Jeddah will be undertaken by Changi Airport of Singapore and will start operations in the second half of 2018 which will be operated by Changi for 20 years.

However, after setting out its blueprint for reform in its Vision 2030 plan, the country is now in the process of implementing measures that will lead to more major schemes being built and paid for by the private sector. Delivering Vision 2030 says that one of the first major steps has already been taken to establish the National Centre for Privatization which was done in March and will be solely responsible for the procurement of public-private partnership (PPP) deals.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is looking at privatizing all of its airports by 2020 with four Airport PPP projects that have already been announced at Yanbu, Taif, Qassim and Hail.

Hence, we at TraiCon will be hosting the Airport PPP Summit which will take place on 6 & 7 December in Riyadh, KSA. This two day summit is an educative platform comprising of both local and international case study presentations, highly interactive panel discussions and networking sessions.

We request all the key government sector stake holders, private sector stake holders and solution providers to support us and actively participate in this summit which focuses on Airport PPPs to improve efficiency and boost employment opportunities across the country.
