Public-Private Partnerships. Turkish Experience
A conference on June 22 focused on the Turkish experience in PPPs highlighted a number of PPP projects in Turkey, including hospitals, road infrastructure, airports.
Why is this important? Because Ukraine needs to make huge investments in infrastructure, healthcare and education to get its economy on track. Years of corruption, Soviet-era inefficiency and now the conflict in the East have drained the country’s budget to the point of default. Private sector participation in infrastructure and public services, which can bring investment and managerial skills to the table, has the potential to significantly speed up the recovery process.
Turkish Ukrainian Entrepreneurs and Businessmen Union took a part in this conference. Deputy Chairman of TUSIB Zekeriya Polat described in detail the background of implementation of PPP system in Turkey. He also remarked that TUSIB is a union of entrepreneurs and businessmen those have a great experience in the both countries. TUSIB is always ready to help government and to consult investors.
