New Zealand: identifying PPP opportunities for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT)

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade commissioned IMC in 2014 to provide technical and research support in response to the need to increase the level of engagement of the private sector in the New Zealand Aid Programme. This support was required to assist the Aid Programme in identifying ways in which it would be able to support the development of an enabling business environment in the Pacific Island countries, create opportunities for small business operators and encourage greater levels of private sector engagement.

In line with the Aid Programme’s areas of priority, IMC performed research of best practices and innovative approaches to developing PPP projects in three sectors, namely ICT, renewable energy and agriculture. Following the results of the research, we then identified opportunities and explored different business models that could be implemented by the private sector in conjunction with communities or NGOs and government institutions.
