Roundtable –Thursday, 12th March

During the Lord Mayor’s visit to East Africa (Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania) last year there was significant interest from both the business delegation and host governments in taking forward opportunities for PPP projects in the region, utilising UK-based expertise. Following on from this visit, UKTI East Africa, together with the Law Society of England & Wales and TheCityUK are organising a return visit to London of senior government and investment leaders to take place between 9 March and 12 March 2015. A list of the delegates is attached. Please note this may be subject to change.

As part of the programme, country-specific roundtables will be held where senior PPP representatives from the country in question will discuss their PPP project pipeline and the solutions/support they may require in taking these forward. UKTI East Africa has also invited the respective High Commissioners to attend the roundtables although their attendance will not be confirmed until closer to the time of the meetings.

If you and/or a colleague would like to attend one or more roundtables please express your interest, indicating your preferred session(s), followed by your second and third choices to international@lawsociety.org.uk.

We will work to accommodate your preferences where possible, although this is subject to demand and capacity which will be limited to one colleague per member firm per roundtable.
