Lebanon’s economic performance has mainly declined due to the refugee influx from Syria and falling oil prices. The Government of Lebanon has kept private participation in infrastructure for several years, tendering a BOT for the Beirut Container Terminal in 2000 (subsequently terminated and re-tendered under a management contract) and a management contract for the Tripoli water network. In addition, the government enacted the Privatization Framework Law Number 228 of 2000, which set up the general framework for privatization (including PPPs) and established the Higher Council for Privatization (HCP).
Despite this and on-going interest in PPPs from the government and from the private sector, a draft PPP law, which would grant HCP the authority to develop and procurement projects, has remained uncertain since 2007 (as are many other draft bills currently). The HCP published a PPP guidance manual in 2014 and continues to push for the passing of the PPP Law, and the government continues to look at private participation in the ports and energy sectors, and special economic zones.
