Public-Private Partnership

pppPPP Development services on the Romanian market

To tackle the financial and economic crisis, the EU and its Member States are trying to stimulate investment in infrastructure projects as an important mean to maintain economic activity during the crisis and support the return to sustained economic growth. Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a proven instrument for effectively delivering infrastructure projects, being at the same time an interesting vehicle for the long-term structural development of infrastructures and services, bringing together distinct advantages of the private sector and the public sector, respectively.

Many governments have used spending on infrastructure, including on PPP, as an anti-cyclical method of stimulating the economy. In addition, the EU Commission’s recent Communication on PPP (published in November 2009) has promoted the use of PPP as an economic tool. In this environment, the majority of European countries are likely to significantly step up their PPP programs or commence major PPP programs for the first time.

While the principal focus of PPP’s should be on promoting efficiency in public services through risk sharing and making use of private sector expertise, they can also relieve the immediate pressure on public finances by providing an additional source of capital. In turn, public sector participation in a project may offer important safeguards for private investors, in particular the stability of long-term cash-flows from public finances, and can incorporate important social benefits into a project.

There is growing interest regarding the role of PPP as a counter-cyclical fiscal policy tool, as long as it can be used to support private sector recovery and generate employment
In Romania PPP attracts a growing interest in the public and the private sector, however a rather poor awareness among local authorities. Despite the lacking projects history, there is a high potential for PPP in the next years, due to the poor infrastructure quality, lacking financing resources but at the same time also to the engagement to close the gap to the EU level of development.
