Abstract

The purpose of these guidelines, is to briefly review the experience of public/private partnerships in infrastructure in the region; to review the reasons for introducing public/private partnerships; and highlight the common issues and problems encountered during the process, Case studies and examples have been included to illustrate how some of these issues and problems have been successfully tackled by countries both within and outside the region and to
provide practical guidance and suggestions for countries wishing to expedite the formation of public/private partnerships. The guidelines contain:

approach which can assist countries in achieving their development objectives and in overcoming problems;
- a catalogue of the primary objectives cited by countries as the reasons for commercialization and privatization of state owned agencies and facilities;
an insight into the reasons why the private sector find some investment projects more attractive than others; and
