Abstract

In this paper various features of Public-Private Partnership are highlighted. This is done within the context of a discussion about instruments to assess the financial- economic attractiveness of PPP as a possible means of implementing transport infrastructure projects. Financial economic assessment instruments are elemental to Dutch PPP policy and form therefore the central issue of this paper.

The various ideas, (empirical) observations and theoretical claims are based on research - both desk research and interviews - in the Netherlands for the Minislry of Finance and other governmental bodies.
