Sri Lanka: FIDIC Contracts Workshop

FIDIC Sri Lanka Photo

On February 24-25, 2021, CLDP conducted a workshop on the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) standard contracts for a delegation of Sri Lankan officials from the Attorney General’s Department. FIDIC contracts follow international standards used in the fields of construction and installation, which are often part of Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). This training was requested by the Attorney General's Department to better understand the risks inherent to infrastructure contracts. Following this training, participants will be in a better position to identify, negotiate, execute, and implement sustainable PPP projects. CLDP’s assistance to Sri Lanka is part of the Indo-Pacific Strategy’s work to build capacity, improve transparency and competition for infrastructure projects, and create opportunities for foreign direct investment. Due to the risk of Covid-19, CLDP staff and experts conducted the training virtually while local officials attended in person at a centralized location in Colombo.
