Invitation to a forum on the challenges in the power industry
Confronting a Crisis: The Philippine Power Sector
The Philippine power industry is undergoing reforms triggered by the 2001 passage of the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA), which sought to further enhance and promote industry competition. In spite of this, the country is faced with an impending power shortage by 2008 in Luzon and possibly earlier in Visayas and Mindanao.
In light of this scenario, the AIM Policy Center and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation are organizing the forum The State of the Philippine Power Industry: Challenges in Financing Privatization, to be held on November 30, 2004 from 8:30 am-12 noon at the AIM-World Bank’s Global Distance Learning Center located at the Asian Institute of Management, 123 Paseo de Roxas, Makati City.
The objectives of the forum are as follows:
1. To develop insights on effective power restructuring to install new generating capacity and efficient power privatization
2. To present the views of financial institutions on solutions to problems in financing privatization given the prevailing political and regulatory environment
3. To hear the reactions of government representatives on the solutions proposed by financial institutions
4. To get the insights of the international community (Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Sri Lanka) based on their countries’ experiences
