Direct Government Spending, Public Private Partnerships & Funds

Through a combination of direct government spending and public private partnerships (PPPs) outlined in the supplementary budget, the Government is determined to increase the level of public investment. Moreover the Government will create additional funds, namely a Sovereign Wealth Fund and National Wealth Fund, to monetise leases to foreign investors and to hold equity from commercial enterprises. The goal of these funds is to ensure the effective realisation of government investments.
