Partner with Abu Dhabi. Let’s build the future together.

Abu Dhabi has had a long history of collaboration between its public and private sectors. This partnership has been a key factor in the emirate’s remarkable growth since the 1950s and its transition into a preferred global investment destination.

In 2019, a new law regulating public-private partnerships (Law No.2) was introduced to encourage long-term involvement of the private sector in major infrastructure projects in the emirate.

Today, ADIO is the central authority for PPP. The emirate’s PPP model includes:

  • Supporting the private sector by increasing their investment in infrastructure projects and delivery of public services
  • Enhancing financial sustainability and flexibility by spreading infrastructure investment costs over the asset life
  • Delivering world-class execution and service delivery by encouraging private sector efficiency and innovation when implementing and operating infrastructure projects

See our Partnership Projects Guidebook for more details on how you can benefit from PPP projects in Abu Dhabi.
