Even though today’s economy has brought quite a significant decline of PPP projects in recent months, the PPPs still prove to be an effective tool and a successful instrument for investment and the delivery of public services if it is planned and financed properly. Since the offset of the financial crisis, debt financing from commercial banks has become more difficult, affecting the bankability of PPP projects. However, innovative financing structures have appeared, bringing bond financing/pension funds financing in the center of attention. Combining EU structural and cohesion funds with PPP remain as an option as well, though bringing some challenges in terms of blending. Our prominent speakers from the public and private sectors will deliver presentations addressing the main challenges and strategies facing the region. Number of case studies covering four different areas will bring a practical view on PPP from various European countries, providing the possibility of learning from each other and sharing the best practices.
