Dr Tae shared on the understanding of effects of state corruptions on the efficiency of public infrastructure management, particularly in the airport operations and management. He also presented on the need to re-examine workability of the increasingly popular public/private partnership (PPP) programme and the disadvantages of using PPP programme while targeting to attract minority private sector investment partners.
