In the recent "SelectUSA Investment Summit 2015" held in Washington DC, jointly hosted by the US Department of Commerce and the US State Department, the US Government recognizes the essential role of the private sector as the main engine for national growth and development. There are several pertinent incentives provided to stimulate private resources for the purpose of financing the construction, operation and maintenance of infrastructure and development projects normally undertaken by the Government.
One of the many incentives that the US Government in general and the State of New Jersey in particular being offered to potential investors is the so called "EB5 Investors' Visa" which is part of the "economic development program" of the State.
The Council for Trade and Investment Promotion (CTIP) an international non-profit organization registered in the State of New Jersey has embarked an advocacy leading towards the promotion of trade and investments through Public-Private-Partnership (PPP). To do this CTIP in partnership with the public and the private sector, most especially with the towns and cities in the State of New Jersey and private corporations and organizations such as banking and financing institutions including private equity funds and infrastructure funds, private companies, Chamber of Commerce and other trade associations both in the U.S. and in other Countries where CTIP has local chapters.
This initiative is the true meaning of PPP. A partnership not only in spirit, but also in deeds.
The second program under the Program Overview, is conducting and/or hosting educational training, seminars, Forums, Conferences and workshops on PPP.
CTIP will invite other trade associations and chamber of commerce, including universities and colleges to jointly hosts educational training not only to promote PPP but also learn the intricacies of using PPP Mode as a tool to undertake government infrastructure and development projects.
