|Looking at the PPP market 10 years in the future to educate PPP leaders in every field.
| PPP is not simply a method based on specific laws. It should be a wide concept which comprehensively entails conceptualizations on what kind of national and local governments are required in order to achieve a sustainable and abundant society, what actions should be taken by administrations and legislative assemblies, the rights and obligations of citizens, whether or not there are private business opportunities, and if it is possible to contribute to the development of global society.
The pillars of our PPP course are the three specialized courses of action which are clarified by this broad understanding of PPP: “city management,” “PPP business,” and “global PPP.”
Currently, the government’s PPP/PFI action plan calls for the output of a target value of 21 trillion yen in the span of 10 years, but I am considering a principle wherein all public works and public services are performed via PPP. Governmental expenditure of nominal GDP is approximately 120 trillion yen, but if even 10% of that amount were PPP, it would be proportionate many times over to the scope of the target value.
To facilitate the future explosive growth of PPP, we will remove the development bottleneck of a lack of human resources by educating PPP leaders in every field through our PPP course.
