MANILA, Philippines - Joint ventures (JVs) are increasingly becoming popular as a fast and easy approach in implementing infrastructure and development projects at the national and local government levels.

To accelerate more economic growth, the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) released the 2013 revised JV guidelines applicable for local government units, government-owned and -controlled corporations, government instrumentalities, government financial institutions, and state universities and colleges. 

The center for Global Best Practices, in collaboration with Forensic Solutions, Inc., aims to walk prospective firms through the revised guidelines and procedures that took the effect last May 26.
