Subways, light-rail transit, trains, streetcars and buses . . . The next generation of public transit projects are complicated, costly and closely watched by the public and government. They’re also vitally important for the livability, inclusivity and economic future of the world’s most densely populated cities. Panellists with responsibility for delivering transit projects worth billions of dollars will discuss the role of public-private partnerships in quickly bringing this critical infrastructure to life and in transferring risk successfully, as well as how to navigate some common challenges with projects of this magnitude.

The governor will discuss how his government is working closely with the private sector to renew the Puerto Rican economy and quickly rebuild after Hurricane Maria made a deadly direct hit on the island a year ago, severely damaging the electrical grid, housing, roads and ports. This transformation will require the island to innovate and rethink its traditional ways of operating, presenting new opportunities for future growth and competitiveness.
After now 10+ years of operating P3 projects, the marketplace has firsthand experience at managing the risk of operations. Some risk was foreseen and mitigated by the Operator on bid day. However, after walking many miles in Project Agreement's, new risks are being recognized. With downward pressure to reduce bid costs by Project Co, is the Operator forced into a corner without enough room to maneuver when bad "stuff" happens? Will this continue or is there other ways to shape Project Agreements so that the Operators doesn't have to gamble with their future or add risk contingencies to future bid costs? Find out what industry experts know now that maybe they didn't fully understand when they bid the Project.

Hiccups happen in projects and sometimes they can seem insurmountable. When things go wrong . . . seriously wrong, having a P3 model in place — and a strong team behind it — can save the day, forging strong outcomes that are less likely in other procurement models and bringing projects back from the brink.

Mr. Mancinelli will discuss why he spearheaded the labour union’s almost $8-billion pension fund to make significant investments in P3 infrastructure projects across the country. A bold initiative that has meant the union’s 120,000 Canadian members — who work in construction, manufacturing and commerce, and the public service — are not only the backbone of creating and operating these much-needed infrastructure projects for their fellow Canadians, they also benefit from the strong returns these investments have generated.
