The meeting was held – online and in-person – to introduce the IFC working group and outline the objectives of the project.

The nature of the management of the state-private sector partnership project was also explored, with a presentation on how the IFC would manage the project, and discussions of how the ministries would communicate and coordinate their oversight of the project.
