PJS Law and Allen & Overy Organized Successful Forum on Financing PPP and Infrastructure Projects

March 18, 2014

The country’s top investment banks and financial institutions gathered last 14 March 2014 for the Forum on Financing PPP and Infrastructure Projects at the Fairmont Hotel, Makati City, organised by PJS Law and Allen & Overy.

Speaking before the audience were Thomas Brown, Senior Partner of Allen & Overy Hong Kong Office, and Ramil E. Bugayong and Monalisa C. Dimalanta, Partners at PJS Law.

Thomas discussed the basics of project finance, from an international perspective, and presented a complex multi-jursidcitional financing of a power project in Thailand and Laos. Ramil and Mona discussed the evolution of project financing in the Philippines – from financing of energy projects after the implementation of the Electric Power Industry Reform Act to the recent surge in PPP project. Ramil and Mona also shared how key issues, such as appropriation risk, MYOA, termination payments, and lenders’ role in the public bidding, become even more critical in the financing of PPP projects.
