Hi PPA FOI Officer,

Thank you for this but I would like to clarify that the data we are requesting are for PPA ports that have been converted to private ports rather than just the general list of registered private ports. 

An example would be the case of the privatization of the Davao-Sasa port in 2010. We need to report the ports that have changed operations from public to private. Hope you can further assist us with this. 

Thank you,
