Governments all around the world are turning to public private partnerships as the demand for infrastructure development increases despite the effects of the global financial crisis. The 16th edition of the Privatisation & Public Private Partnership Review examines privatisation and PPP developments over the last 12 months, while also casting an eye over future privatisation and PPP plans and developments through a collection of leading-edge articles and commentaries.
As Geoff Haley, Global Chairman of the International Project Finance Association (IPFA) comments: "The demand for infrastructure development across the world continues to increase even though we are seeing reduced economic growth in many countries… Infrastructure development aids growth and creates jobs over the short and medium term as well as enabling investment for future generations. However we have a dilemma, the financial crisis has aggravated the infrastructure gap by reducing the scope for public investment, whilst at the same time reducing the availability of private capital by increasing the cost and restricting its availability… Global prospects for PPP and project finance have never been better. Across the world we see more and more countries using project finance to develop infrastructure and adopting the PPP concept."
