This one-day event, under the theme Uniting Public and Private Sectors for the Empowerment of South Africa’s Defence and Security Sectors, aims to bring together key stakeholders from government entities, the defence and security industry, private funding institutions and academic and research institutions to explore PPP opportunities and discuss strategies to strengthen South Africa’s defence and security capabilities.
PPPs are a commonly utilised mechanism by government, combining the Public and private sectors for the purpose of delivering a project or service traditionally provided by the public sector to incentivize the private sector to deliver projects on time and within budget. PPPs are also used as a means of introducing private sector technology and innovation in providing better public services through improved operational efficiency. Based on the 3 pillars of governance, institutions and capacity, the main priority is to now extend the PPPs concept towards the consideration of and implementation by the security cluster and defence space.
This event, in addition to exploring the in-depth implementation process of defence and security customized PPP, also seeks to address how public and private sectors work together to solve the current challenges in the defence and security space. Participants will engage on how the industry can help the Security Cluster come up with innovative solutions to its challenges, including providing security equipment and services in times of budget constraints.
We are committed to delivering an exceptional event that fosters cooperation, drives innovation, and strengthens South Africa’s defence capabilities.
