While the wishing/hoping is always done by the speaker, the construction differs if it is a wish/hope for the speaker themselves or for another person/a group that does or does not include the speaker.
Below constructions as per bunpro's lesson notes on this grammar point [https://bunpro.jp/grammar_points/129]

Wishing for others/inside group:

Desired Outcome + といいですね
Desired Outcome + といいね

Wishing for oneself:

Desired Outcome + といいなぁ
Desired Outcome + といいんですが
Desired Outcome + といいんだけど


Further, the desired outcome should be something that is out of the control of the speaker (e.g. other persons doing/achieving something, changes in weather, etc.)
