Project Summary

The impact of public investment on growth depends on the quality of governance and how public investment systems are configured. APEC economies present vast diversity in their public investment systems, particularly in their methodologies, decision-making processes, and governance models. Also, efficiency in the use of infrastructure resources is dissimilar in APEC economies. This project aims to improve institutional efficiency for APEC member economies by sharing best practices in Public Investment Systems.

A two-day workshop on Public Investment Systems will be organized. The aim is to help member economies make further improvements in their Public Investment Systems (PIS) sharing best international practices. This workshop will focus on ensuring effective prioritization of government expenditure, generating more transparency and controlling quality and costs of infrastructure projects. After the workshop, a report will be generated. This report will set out recommendations, best practices and areas for improvement in public investment management.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: As the World Bank and the OECD have found, “Public investment shapes choices about where people live and work, influences the nature and location of private investment and affects the quality of life”. Public investment can be a powerful tool to boost growth and provide the right infrastructure to leverage private investment. In contrast, poor investment choices waste resources, erode public trust and may hamper growth opportunities. The impact of public investment on growth depends on the quality of governance and how public investment systems are configured. APEC economies present vast diversity in their public investment systems, particularly in their methodologies, decision-making processes, and governance models. Also, efficiency in the use of infrastructure resources is dissimilar in APEC economies; it is possible to find a significant variance in costs and times between similar infrastructure projects. In this context, this project will help APEC economies to improve their public investment systems, developing economies in particular (which have more lagging institutional structures), by promoting modern public investment systems and sharing international best practice. The result will be to create an enabling public-private investment environment and an improved prioritization in government expenditure. 

Relevance – Eligibility: This project has direct links to the Chilean RAASR Individual Action Plan (IAP) as it in accord with the “Eligibility Criteria and Guidelines for Accessing the RAASR Sub-Fund.” The project is in line with Priority 1, Action A of this IAP, which aim is to “increase government and private sector investment in infrastructure." An upgrading of the Chilean public investment system will help to improve the allocation of public resources and to develop a robust public project portfolio (reducing discretionary margins in the investment decisions and decreasing financial and technical risks). This project is also in line with the APEC Economic Policy Report 2018 regarding Structural Reform and Infrastructure. Also, this project is directly linked to the RAASR´s goal since it seeks the improvement of the prioritization of public expenditure which results in better social welfare and furthermore, right investment decisions stimulate economic growth. 

Moreover, the project is in accord with RAASR´s first pillar because the development of a robust Public Investment Systems allows for more transparency in the infrastructure sector. Finally, the Workshop will promote the standardization and adoption of good practices in ensuring effective prioritization of government expenditure through sharing knowledge and experience among members. If this result were to be achieved, this would be directly in line with the fourth priority of the “Leaders’ Agenda to Implement Structural Reform” and the third instruction of the “2015 Structural Reform Ministerial Meeting”.

Relevance – Capacity Building: This project will help to improve the economic growth and to build APEC member economies’ capacity in public investment management. The result of this project (recommendations, identifying best practices and areas for improvement) will enable further dissemination in APEC economies. The project allows generating new lines of work in APEC economies which develops more targeted interventions, particularly in emerging economies for example:

·  improving governance according to their economic context,

·  economic/social evaluation systems and methodology,

·  establishing quality standards in infrastructure projects,

·  improving ITC Systems, databases,

. Legal changes

Objectives

This project aims to improve institutional efficiency for APEC member economies by sharing best practices in Public Investment Systems.

The specific objectives of this project include:

·  To share successful approaches in Public Investment Management for purposes of practical learning.

·  To build the capacity of developing economies and find areas for improvement.

·  To identify quality standards that can be used to control infrastructure quality.

·  To develop recommendations which can be made to APEC Economies to improve their Public Investment Systems as well to identify the biggest gaps they need to solve in order to move to a  standardization of their methodologies and processes.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC:  Modern public investment systems are in line with APEC's overarching goals since these systems allow the incorporation of environmental impacts and vulnerable population impacts (indigenous communities, women, people with disabilities and others) in the evaluation of projects. This project will aim to improve such systems through knowledge transfer, recommendations, and case studies analysis. From this work, it is expected to start a modernization process in investment systems of APEC economies, as well as a process of standardization between these systems in the long term. 

Alignment – Forum: This project is aligned with the agenda of the Economic Committee (Leaders' Agenda to Implement Structural Reform (LAISR) and The Renewed APEC Agenda for Structural Reform (RAASR)) since public investment systems improve public sector management, increasing efficiency and transparency in investment decisions and lower the uncertainty for private investment. Also, the impact of public expenditure on growth depends on how public investment systems are configured. 

In addition, this project the is aligned with other initiatives that are currently in the APEC. In the first place, this project will be aligned with the results of the 2018 AEPR on Structural Reform Infrastructure. Also, the "APEC Connectivity Blueprint for 2015-2025" and the "Peer Review and Capacity Building on APEC Infrastructure Development and Investment" are initiatives that will contribute to the discussion during the project.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: 

1) Pre-workshop work: Prepare the information that will be analyzed during the workshop: collect case studies.

Considering the existing literature, the PO will collect the information of economies that had a successful design and implementation of their Public Investment System. The collection will consider four cases, such as Republic of Korea; Chile; Peru; Nicaragua or Mexico.

Additionally, a survey will be sent to the participating economies, in order to receive information about the current development state of their Public Investment Systems. This survey will consider questions to identify if the economies have developed a gender-sensitive project evaluation. 

2) Workshop: The primary product of the project is a two-day workshop to take place in August of 2019 (approx.150 participants). The objective is to bring together different authorities and policymakers from the economics, finance, planning, infrastructure, transport, housing among other ministries from several APEC economies. The workshop will be an opportunity to share successful approaches in Public Investment Management for purposes of practical learning. The workshop would allow for review of collected case studies as well as exchanges between individual economy representatives. The workshop will be carefully planned in the next few months, and a set of materials setting out the goals of the workshop will be prepared prior to it. 

The speakers will be specialists or academics who are investigating public investment issues. The plan is to seek speakers who will address, amongst others, the following topics:

a) Analysis of governance models and organizational structures for the correct management of public investment systems.

b)  Cost-benefit and other analysis techniques for evaluation and prioritization of infrastructure projects (for example, evaluation methods that include criteria related to equity in general).

i) Infrastructure plans and public-private financing models (successful examples).

ii) Strategies for the implementation and improvement of public investment systems. These strategies will serve as a roadmap for other economies.

For instance, selected research papers will be included in the documents for discussion.  

3) Recommendations: Recommendations will be given for the development, strengthening and standarization of APEC public investment systems. These recommendations will assist to reduce the negative impacts of inadequate management of these resources. These recommendations will also be developed through the revision of successful strategies from other economies in this matter together with recommendations from international organizations. To increase the applicability of the recommendations, they will be developed considering the information obtained from the pre-workshop survey. This will help to focus the recommendations on the most relevant aspects pointed out by the economies. 

4) Report (or dossier): The second output will be a report which will contain a summary of the workshop with its main conclusions and recommendations. Specifically, this report will set out proposals, best practices, areas for improvement in Public Investment Systems. The report will be sent to the participants, as well as to principal actors in the APEC economies and other organizations who would have participated in the workshop. (This report is different than the Completion Report. The expected length of the report is 20 to 30 pages) 

Outcomes: It is expected that this project will increase the awareness of the importance of Public Investment Systems and improve the way these systems are implemented in APEC economies. Indeed, this project will also be raising awareness with respect to opportunities that can emerge from investing in investment systems which promote innovation, productivity, and growth. 

Based on the presentations, discussions, and recommendations produced from the workshop, it is hoped that participants will improve their knowledge of Public Investment Systems, especially in the topics of governance, evaluation projects, infrastructure plans and implementation strategies. Consequently, the workshop will raise useful suggestions as to best practices that can be incorporated once the participants return to their home economies or organizations. 

The project will be based on collaboration and exchange of empirical evidence obtained from the sharing of experiences in the development of Public Investment Systems for the benefit of all APEC members. It is intended that the project allow for the establishment of a collaborative approach involving all stakeholders to address the possible heterogeneity of systems, in turn promoting the strengthening and standarization of these systems. This collaborative approach takes shape from the methodologies of group work and analysis that will be used in the workshop. 

By supporting modern public investment systems and sharing its international best practices, this project expects to create an enabling public-private investment environment and improved prioritization in government expenditure. 

Additionally, this project will also support policy-makers interested in these issues,  it could also generate an APEC network to discuss these topics. This network will help to maintain the conversations of the PIS after the end of the workshop. 

Finally, the project will seek to generate ongoing work with respect to the study of Public Investment Systems within APEC, exploring collaborative projects with APEC host economies in the following years. 

Beneficiaries: Immediate beneficiaries of this project will be the participants who attend the two-day workshop and their organizations. To that end, project participants should be high-level authorities and policymakers who can promote institutional reforms aimed at improving infrastructure investment systems in their economies. For that reason, one directly targeted audience is APEC authorities and government officials from ministries related to infrastructure (economics, finance, planning, infrastructure, transport, housing) or sectorial ministries that have sizeable sectoral investment budgets (health and education). 

Infrastructure industry representatives and international financial institutions (World Bank, CAF, BID, among others) will also participate and use the outputs of the project as they could be affected by some of the changes made to Public Investment Systems. Also, academics and researchers from universities and representatives of multilateral organizations (for example, UN, ECLAC, FMI) which include public investment within their scope of research will participate in the project. Also, members of the Network of National Public Investment Systems (SNIP) for Latin America and the Caribbean will be invited to share their current experiences in that specific region. Other beneficiaries will be specialists and researchers from APEC economies concerned with Public Investment Systems who can access the documentation generated by the workshop. 

The target participants will be identified through the EC network and other fora, such as the Competition Policy and Law Group (CPLG) and the Committee on Trade and Investment (CTI). Additionally, representatives from the industry and investment associations from each economy will be identified through a survey conducted before the workshop. 

Finally, long-term beneficiaries will be the citizens of the participating economies who are able to improve their public investment systems. Also, the private sector will be benefited because there will be a better portfolio of public projects that they can finance, reducing business risks.

Dissemination

The workshop materials and the report will be sent for publication on websites of public institutions of the APEC economies. This report will not be an APEC publication. The report will be distributed through the Economic Committee, will be posted on the existing APEC and University of Chile website and shared through email. 

Along with the above, the report will be sent to the participants identified above, among whom are: Ministry representatives, specialists and university professors, regional government authorities, multilateral organizations (ECLAC, UN, IMF) and multilateral investment banks (World Bank, CAF, IDB, among others).  Further, case studies and papers will be sent to digital magazines (such as Public System Series ISSN 2452 4514)and the results will also be shared with the workshop participants.

Gender

The workshop has as its aim to include male and female speakers and to achieve gender balance. Also, the project will encourage as far as possible, participating economies to send gender-balanced teams. This objective will be pursued emphasizing with economies to send their participations lists previous the event. However, the final outcome will depend of the economies decisions. 

The workshop intends to present gender-sensitive project evaluation methodologies. This aspect of the project will be shared with APEC’s Policy Partnership on Women and the Economy (PPWE), in order to receive their recommendations and to share the results obtained. For example, methodologies which consider amongst their social benefits an infrastructure that enables the mobility of women during pregnancy or infrastructure designed to reduce the risk of sexual harassment. Together with the above, a random sampling of APEC economies will be asked for information concerning the participation of women in the governing bodies of their investment systems. This information will serve as input for an analysis of the represented bureaucracy. 

It is also important to consider that this project is relevant to three of APEC’s five pillars for promoting women’s economic empowerment: Access to Markets; Access to Capital; and Skills, Capacity Building, and Health, all fields related in some manner to Public Investment Systems of the participating economies. 

PO is committed to collect sex disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (not only the APEC funded) at the project event. This data will be included when submitting a Completion Report to the Secretariat at the completion of the project achieved as well as giving future POs guidance on their own gender parity targets.

Work Plan

The project will implement a two-day workshop that will build on and integrate various visions and good practices concerning Public Investment Systems.

-  Infrastructure plans and public-private financing models.

-  Strategies for implementation and improvement of public investment systems. 

–February - April 2019

Identify and contact workshop participants

In February, the PO will send an invitation to the economies, without pre-established names. This invitation will be sent out to APEC members for them to nominate the economy’s representatives. As an additional effort, the Project team will identify and contact other possible workshop participants. To this end, the team will contact governmental authorities and embassies of APEC economies to ascertain economies´ that are interested in participating in the workshop. By the end of April, it is expected to have assembled a preliminary list of participants.

From this list, registration procedures will be sent to the APEC economies and the other guests.

February – April 2019

Design and send of a survey to identify the current situation regarding Public Investment Systems of APEC economies

A survey aimed to understand and compile all current relevant information from Public Investment Systems of APEC economies (for example, level of investment system maturity, the participation of women).  

February 2019

Preliminary presentation

The project will be presented at the SOM 1 in Santiago, Chile.

April 2019

Design the final structure of the workshop

After obtaining preliminary lists of participants and speakers, the team will proceed to structure the workshop, choosing specific issues regarding Public Investment Systems. To this end, the contributions of the co-sponsoring and participating economies will be considered. In this task, the collection of case studies will also be carried out.

May 2019

Finally, the Project team will complete and submit the project completion report two months after the workshop.

6 to 12 months after project end date

Participation in the Long-Term Evaluation of APEC Projects

Participation in the Long-Term Evaluation of APEC Projects conducted by the Secretariat, as required by all APEC funded projects.

Risks

Since Chile is far away from most APEC economies, one of the main risks of the project is not to get as many participants as is desired. To minimize this risk, the network of Chilean embassies and trade representatives in all APEC economies will be used to help identify and engage possible speakers and participants. The Project team will also work with all diplomatic and commercial representatives of all APEC economies in Chile to encourage participation, considering the necessary email exchange, phone invitations, and meetings to explain the relevance of discussing this topic. This work will be done during January and March 2019to manage the risk and increase the probability of attaining high-level speakers and participants. The fact that the workshop is held on the margins of an existing Economic Committee meeting should also help increase attendance. If despite the effort done, an economy is not present, the PO will consider the possibility to transmit the workshop with a video conference system. 

The participation of the desired amount of women is one of the most significant risks of the project. One formula to try to manage this risk is to be in contact with APEC’s Policy Partnership on Women and the Economy (PPWE) to identify women that can be invited to the workshop. 

Another risk that this project may face is to achieve the participation of high level/quality speakers who can adequately address the established objectives. In this context, we will work together with partner agencies to identify a pool of potential high-level speakers. The Project team has already begun the process of informally contacting potential participants to ascertain their availability and willingness to participate in the August workshop. 

The risk of economies not applying the knowledge learned or adopting recommendations from the project, will be managed working hard in trying to identify appropriately the stage in which every economy is at the beginning of the workshop; the gap of implementation that is necessary to resolve, and the definition of the short-medium-long term actions that they should develop. This action plan will be followed up in the "after six months" survey.

Monitoring and Evaluation

In the short-term this project will be monitored and evaluated by several indicators: 

1)  Workshop

i) Pre-workshop survey: Number of surveys completed by APEC member economies received by the PO.

Indicator 1: Percentage of answered surveys ([Number of answered surveys/Number of surveys sent] *100). Acceptable range= above 75%.

ii)  Workshop attendance: the success of the project will be measured by the number of participants and delegates of different APEC economies and relevant stakeholders attending the workshop

Indicator 2: Percentage of attendants to the workshop ([Number of attendants to the workshop/ Number of invitations sent] *100). Acceptable range= above 75%.

Indicator 3: Number of participants from APEC economies, funded as well as non-funded ([Number of APEC Economies attendants to the workshop/ Number of APEC Economies] *100). Acceptable range= Our aspirational goal regarding the participation of funded economies is at least 70% and regarding non-funded economies 60%.

Indicator 4: Rate of female participants ([Number of women participants]/[Total participants]*100). Acceptable range=  50%.

Indicator 5: Rate of female speakers ([Number of women speakers]/[Total speakers]*100). Acceptable range=  50%.[1]

iii) Post-workshop survey of attendees: This survey will include indicators related to the experiences learned at the three-day workshop and an overall evaluation of the experience.

Indicator 6: Level of satisfaction of each of the discussion panels regarding knowledge acquired and transmitted. Acceptable range= from 75% to 100% of attendants with level satisfactory.

Indicator 7: Number of surveys received in the “following up” survey (six months after the workshop. Acceptable range= above 60% of the participating economies.

2) Post report resources

a)  Report survey: This survey will include indicators related to the quality of the workshop reports and the next steps to the APEC Economies to improve their public investment systems

Indicator 8: Percentage of APEC economies with at least one survey answered ([Number of APEC economies with at least one survey answered/ Number of APEC economies who attend to the workshop] *100). Acceptable range= from 90% to 100%.

b)  Other resources: Furthermore, the success of the workshop will be measured through the number of downloads that the workshop proceeding has, from the APEC website until November 2019.

Indicator9: Number of downloads from the APEC website and other websites.

3) Final Report

a) Feedback from the Economic Committee: A final report will be elaborated, which will include a workshop, survey, and results. It will be sent to the Economic Committee for feedback and improvement suggestions. 

In the mid-term, the success of the workshop may be measured through indicators related to new collaborations between APEC economies generated from the workshop.


[1] Please note that, regardless the effort of the PO, the final outcome of the indicator 4 and 5 will depend of the economies decisions.

Linkages

This project is aligned with other initiatives that are currently in the APEC. In the first place, this project will be aligned with the results of the 2018 AEPR on Structural Reform Infrastructure. To this end, 2018 AEPR will be used as an input for the workshop agenda. For this reason, the 2018 AEPR key elements of public sector governance models for infrastructure will be followed.  In addition, the "APEC Connectivity Blueprint for 2015-2025" and the "Peer Review and Capacity Building on APEC Infrastructure Development and Investment" will be considered as structuring elements for the discussion in the workshop.

Also, this project will be actively open to the participation and collaboration of other organizations with respect to current initiatives in the field of Public Investment. Firstly, the project would generate synergies with the Effective Public Investment Toolkit developed by the OECD by complementing knowledge obtained from successful case studies which would allow the improvement of these systems. Also, this project will work with the ECLAC Network of National Public Investment Systems (SNIP) for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Along with previous efforts, it has been noted that the World Bank and the IMF (Public Investment Management Assessment) have made efforts to begin to systematize management of public investment research. The discussion generated by the workshop may benefit from this research.

To be able to commit the previous organizations and others (OECD, IMF, World Bank, ECLAC, IDB) to these joint efforts, they will be invited to the workshop, and it is hoped that these organizations will be integrated into the workshop activities.

The workshop materials and the final report will be available to the rest of the world's economies which could benefit from the recommendations and good practices therein identified.

Finally, the project will generate a valuable opportunity to talk about the theme of public investment. The ability of the APEC economies to work together will make it possible to achieve the collaboration, standardization and knowledge transfer in this theme.

Sustainability

One of the most important outputs of the project is the report that will be prepared with respect to recommendations regarding the strengthening and development of public investment systems throughout the APEC region. This report will provide content reflecting the current situation, similarities, differences, needs, and recommendations which may be identified for the strengthening of public investment systems of all APEC economies. All APEC economy and non-member economies will be able to use the information set out in the Workshop report to apply it to their public investment systems. 

In addition to the report, the materials generated by the Workshop will be made available in an information platform (website of Public Systems Centre) which can be made available to the entire community. The Center for Public Systems (CSP) belongs to Industrial Engineering of the University of Chile and was created in May 2010 and currently has a clear mission: to contribute significantly to the improvement of public policies and the modernization of the State in Chile and Latin America, with a view to promoting the human development of people and the creation of public value. Thanks to our team of academics, collaborators and researchers, the CSP addresses the problems from an interdisciplinary and systemic perspective, with the aim of increasing the creation of public value and human development. 

CSP users are all public institutions of the Chilean State, seeking support in projects, studies and training for their public servants. However, because it belongs to the University of Chile, which is considered the best university in Chile by the America Economía Ranking, its visibility reaches Latin America and the world. This allows the information published on your website to be available to the entire community. 

The PO will also apply a survey six months later to follow up the use or reflections made in the economies regarding the recommendations elaborated after the workshop. 

One of the next steps is to carry out technical assistance to APEC economies which need to improve their public investment systems. For this reason, as far as possible, the project team will apply for funds that allow the financing of this kind of actions.
