MANILA - Some of President Benigno Aquino's Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects won't be finished by the time he steps down from office in 2 years, a Palace official said Wednesday.

Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said although Cabinet departments are confident that some projects will be completed by 2016, others projects "will last beyond 2016."

"In terms of the details, I can provide you the 15 projects. But we will ask Undersecretary (Cosette) Canilao," he said.

"There will be projects that will be finished, hopefully, before the President’s term ends and some of the projects will go beyond 2016, which, in any event, both—whether it ends with us, or ends in the term of another President, the end-point being—the objective is to provide the necessary infrastructure in the country," he added.
