Abstract

This paper aims to define Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) that are considered as a major approach in delivering public infrastructure projects in recent years. The paper analyses PPPs in Southeastern Europe, particularly in Croatia, describing the projects that have been achieved and the efforts of governments to promote the PPPs as alternative means of funding and bearing into consideration the formulation of the theoretical framework of PPP. The paper concludes that although the need for infrastructural projects in Croatia is huge, however the number of projects proposed are confined, according the Agency for PPPs for the approved PPP projects
