Despite the existence of articles in various law reviews on topics involving public-private partnerships (PPPs) and private finance initiatives (in areas such as projects and construction, real estate, mergers, transfers of concessionaires’ corporate control, special purpose vehicles and government procurement, to name but a few), there is a need for a deeper understanding of how different countries address specific matters on this topic. This book is an initial effort to fulfil this need.
We hope a comparative study covering practical aspects and different perspectives on public-private partnership issues will become an important tool for the strengthening of the model worldwide. We are certain this study will bring about a better dissemination of best practices implemented by private professionals and government authorities working on PPP projects around the globe.
We strongly believe that PPPs are an important tool for generating investments (and development) and creating efficiency not only in infrastructure, but also in the provision of public services, such as education and health, as well as prisons, monitoring urban areas and public lighting.
PPPs are also an important means of combating corruption in the old and inefficient model of direct state procurement of projects.
Our contributors have been drawn from the most renowned firms working in the PPP field in their jurisdictions and we sincerely expect that this book will become, in the coming years, a comprehensive international guide to the anatomy of PPPs.
