Within the framework of the internship, a team of specialists from the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the Bureau of Planning and Budget, the CND and other state organizations from Uruguay address the challenges posed in the use of these two tools.

They also share the management and processes in the structuring, implementation, monitoring and learned lessons of Project Finance, reviewing the technical, legal, risk-related, financial, operations, regulations, participants, among other aspects. In relation to the PPP, they examine their institutional framework, legal norms, project financing, risk mitigation, achievements and challenges.
