The Executive Committee (ExCom) decided to transform the Team of Specialists on Public-Private Partnerships (TOS PPP) into a Working Party at its meeting on Friday, 18 November. Below please find the text of the ExCom decision:


          EXCOM approves the establishment of the Working Party on Public-Private Partnerships and its terms of reference, as contained in document ECE/CECI/2016/6, Annex, to replace the Team of Specialists on Public-Private Partnerships as of its first session to be held in 2017.

          To ensure continuity, EXCOM recommends to the Working Party on Public-Private Partnerships to consider electing as its Bureau the members of the Bureau of the Team of Specialists on Public-Private Partnerships that were elected in October 2016.
