Spire Research and Consulting’s Director Yap Far Loon was honored to be appointed as moderator at the 4th South-East Asia Port Expansion Summit 2017 organized by the Noppen Group. The summit was held on 26 October 2017 in Kuala Lumpur. It discussed challenges and opportunities in obtaining sustainable project financing.

Yap Far Loon, Business Development Director, Public Sector, Financial Services and ICT for Spire Research and Consulting, moderated the discussion panel on financing for port expansion projects. He focused the discussion on challenges and innovative business models for Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).

For successful PPPs, the roles and responsibilities need to be defined clearly to all stakeholders. Local partners should also be given concessionaire flexibility to add intangible business value.

Yap also shared his insights on practical business models for PPPs and how exit-based PPP models can dilute private sector investment through the listing of PPP securities and investing in securitized products.
