Public-Private Partnerships

In a world where government funding is scarce due to the tightening of the public purse, or dwindling natural resources that provide an important source of finance, the utilisation of PPPs is one of the vital avenues to meet the growing demand for infrastructure projects. PPPs may represent a win-win dynamic formula for the State and the private sector, as they encourage infrastructure projects based on a targeted and pre-agreed IRR which are vital to the economy, without necessarily burdening the State’s finances.
