PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS – CURRENT TRENDS, PROBLEMS AND FUTURE DIRECTIONS (WARSAW)

10.03.2009  |  Arhīvā

In order to obtain information of financial and legal structure of PPP projects, to get introduced with relevant EU law, guidelines from European Commission and important rulings of European Court of Justice and to participate in discussion on current related problems and their possible solutions, SOPHIA CONFERENCES is pleased to invite you to participate in interactive one day seminar “Public and Private Partnerships – current trends, problems and future directions”.

Nowadays, facing a growing demand for effective public service and infrastructure delivery and changing some basic concepts on activities relevant to public administrations, Public and Private Partnerships (PPP’s) are more and more recognized as an attractive alternative in comparison with traditional delivery models, such as Public Procurement. Though in countries, which are already quite familiar with PPP, an initial optimistic approach for good reasons has been replaced with the pragmatic one, PPP’s are nevertheless used in a present and in future their number is only going to increase. Therefore for emerging markets – such as Baltic States – it is reasonable to benefit from foreign experience, in the meantime critically adopting it to local circumstances.
    It must also be noted that PPP projects should be reviewed in the context of present financial circumstances – it is clear that due to the increasing cost of finance their successful implementation will closely depend on the quality of tender documents and PPP contract as well as correct legal and financial structure of the project.

    In order to obtain information of financial and legal structure of PPP projects, to get introduced with relevant EU law, guidelines from European Commission and important rulings of European Court of Justice and to participate in discussion on current related problems and their possible solutions, SOPHIA CONFERENCES is pleased to invite you to participate in interactive one day seminar “Public and Private Partnerships – current trends, problems and future directions”.
