The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center currently has 117 projects worth PHP2.5 trillion in the pipeline for undertaking between the government and private sector.

"This is as of February 2. Particularly, we have a bulk of the projects still in the transportation sector because we are doing a lot of catching up," PPP Center Executive Director Cynthia Hernandez said in a forum in Makati City.

Hernandez said that aside from transportation, other priority sectors include solid waste management, health and water.

"Out of the 117 projects, there are 15 that are expected to be approved in 2024," she said.

Some of these projects include the operations and maintenance (O&M) of the Metro Manila Subway, North-South Commuter Rail O&M, San Ramon Newport, University of the Philippines Philippine General Hospital in Diliman, Cagayan Valley Medical Center-Hemodialysis Center, and the National Capital Region EDSA Busway Project.

Other projects include the O&M of the following projects: Cebu Bus Rapid Transit, Davao City Bypass, Metro Rail Transit-3, and Light Rail Transit-2.

Unsolicited PPP projects for approval this year also include the rehabilitation, operation, maintenance and expansion of both the Puerto Princesa International Airport and the Iloilo International Airport; upgrade, expansion and O&M of New Bohol International Airport; the Long-Term Water Resource Development for Metro Manila Project; and the operation and maintenance of the Philippine Identification System.

"For 2025, we have these projects that are currently in the early stages of development. And the preliminary studies are expected to be completed. Once completed, they can be submitted by the implementing agencies for approval by 2025," Hernandez said.

These projects include the New Cebu International Container Port, Air Navigation Services-Air Traffic Services Project, Philippine Automatic Fare Collection System, San Mateo Railway Project, Manila Bay-Pasig River-Laguna Lake Ferry Project, North Integrated Transport System, Mindanao Railway Project Phase 3, North Long Haul Inter-Regional Railway Project, and Davao City Bypass Construction Project O&M.
