Finance / PPP

At an international level there is a steadily widening gap between the demand and public resources for infrastructure facilities. Therefore, the possibility of private financing for complex construction projects in relation to BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) or PPP (Private-Public Partnerships) is an increasingly crucial factor in international competition.

For almost two decades, governments in both industrial and developing economies have used Public-Private Partnerships and Project Finance to accelerate investment in infrastructure and improve service delivery. The ongoing global economic and financial crisis has generated challenges at all levels of economic policy decisions, including those connected to PPPs and Project Finance.

EIC constantly reviews developments in the global PPP and Project Finance markets and publishes recommendations on how to improve the respective tendering procedures and the interaction between various types and sources of financing, as well as the division of risk between the parties involved. 

For 2009, the Working Group Finance/PPP established its own database on Infrastructure PPP and published statistics with data on the share of EIC member companies in the global PPP market. A first update followed for 2011, with the next update for 2013 scheduled to be published in Spring 2014.
