Public-Private Partnership (Theoretical-Methodological Interpretation)


  • Evgenii Kanev


With combining of neoclassical and institutional approach and the methodological principle of the external adding, a tendency towards increase of the interaction between public and private sector is outlined. The public-private partnership (PPP) is proved as a perspective form of this interaction. The paper defends the thesis that due to the opportunity to attract private capital, to share the risks, to start the private initiative and market competitive mechanisms, FDI is more effective model for creating public assets and offering qualitative public services, compared with the direct state investments and the public orders. The condition is to follow the concrete goals and to have political support.
