Duncan, Jr. (R-TN), will examine international perspectives and models of P3s, and will hear from two active government participants in the P3 project delivery model: Partnerships British Columbia and Infrastructure Ontario.  

The Panel continues its work to explore the use of and opportunities for P3s across all modes of transportation, economic development, public buildings, water, and maritime infrastructure.
