CONFERENCE ON THE ECONOMICS OF THE PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS
April 20-21, 2012 / Barcelona / Conference
The provision of public goods provides a strong rationale for public-private hybrids that can efficiently carry out investment and operations in utilities and public infrastructure. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are gaining momentum, both for governments seeking efficient solutions to enhance public services and for investors as an asset class. With the present financial crisis, the debate on the role of PPPs has attracted new attention. This conference aims at bridging scholars' and practitioners' viewpoints on the economics of PPPs beyond that of a transient solution.
