The report highlights a significant difference between the USA, UK and Japan compared to three other nations; Indonesia, Myanmar and Ghana.
There is also a sharp difference in the ability of the Private sector to operate in the UK compared to USA and Japan.
The report concludes with a list of key enablers for a vibrant Private Public Engagement:
- Legal framework: existent, enforced and stable over time.
- Open Data with free access for data produced by all public entities, including the NMHS.
- No hydromet monopoly (beside warnings), licensing or other market barriers.
- No commercial activities of the NMHS, without very strong laws on competition.
- Sound strategy, clear role and corresponding budget allocation for NMHS. No requirements regarding cost recovery.
- Creating high awareness of public entities (not only NMHS), businesses and the general public regarding the benefits from hydromet products and services.
- A structured and continuous dialog between public, private, and academic sector.
These are all policies which PRIMET supports.
