Global PPP hotspots revealed
The UK was also considered to be one of the top five PPP markets, despite the recent political uncertainty surrounding the model, as firms saw signs of hope coming from the Treasury’s PFI review.
And although UK politicians have been critical of the PFI model, it ranked second among the world’s most desirable PPP models in the survey, shortly behind Canada.
Given the Treasury’s previous interest in the Canadian model, it is believed the result could go some way to further encouraging officials to adopt many of the Canadian approaches into the revamped UK version.
The survey also revealed some of the biggest challenges facing the global PPP industry, the ‘top tip’ for an emerging market and what makes a region attractive to investors. These issues and more will be discussed at a major PPP conference in London on 31 May 2012.
