On the 17th July 2015 Altra Capital and El Dorado Investments signed a cooperation agreement to provide PPP capacity building and technical advisory services to 24 regional departments in Peru.

The agreement will see Altra Capital, in conjunction with El Dorado Investments, provide a programme which will involve a period of training and capacity building in Peru followed by a mentoring phase where the departments will put some of their new knowledge into practice, with guidance on identifying and developing PPP pilot projects.

The programme will cover the principles for planning, delivering and operating infrastructure and PPP programmes at a sub-national level, as well as how to implement international best practices to achieve successful outcomes.

The programme, due to be delivered in the third and fourth quarter this year, will allow around 45 senior staff from regional departments all across Peru to work with international infrastructure experts to develop a better understanding of the key aspects required to encourage successful long-term investment in infrastructure projects.
