ADB's Focus on Public-Private Partnerships (PPP)
In the Spotlight
This publication provides information on the PPP business environment in nine ADB developing member countries to help public sector policy makers improve private sector participation in infrastructure projects.
The Office of Public–Private Partnership (OPPP) was established in September 2014 to help deliver bankable PPP projects across developing Asia. Find out more about how the office works and why public-private partnerships are key to regional economic growth.
ADB raised its growth forecast for developing Asia. Regional GDP is expected to expand 5.9% in 2017 and 5.8% in 2018 on a recovery in global trade and strong growth in major industrial economies.
This paper draws on the experience of countries in Asia in designing a model project development fund specifically for the People's Republic of China.
Infrastructure needs in developing Asia and the Pacific will exceed $22.6 trillion through 2030. Available funding from traditional sources falls far short of the investment need. Public–private partnerships can play an important role in addressing this massive requirement. Involvement of the private sector has the potential to improve efficiency as well as asset and service quality.
To support public–private partnerships in the region, ADB has a dedicated team of advisors to assist both public sector clients and private sector sponsors across a wide range of sectors. ADB advises on project conceptualization, structuring, marketing, and negotiation while firmly rooting transactions on public policy imperatives.
ADB’s Office of Public–Private Partnership helps governments use the financing, efficiency and quality of the private sector for projects that benefit society. This includes providing transaction advisory services and a project preparation facility that helps governments, and their private sector partners, establish a pipeline of bankable PPP projects.
