Uruguay announced it will put out to tender by the end of this year a public-private partnership for the construction of 225 schools as part of its five-year national infrastructure plan.

The PPP initiative consists of building 165 schools, including 20 kindergartens, for the national public education administration (ANEP) and another 60 for Uruguay's child and adolescent institute (INAU).

The schools will require estimated investment of US$432mn.

The initiative is currently in the structuring phase, according to a release from the presidency.

In 2015, the government presented its infrastructure investment plan including total investment of US$12bn until 2019.
