Description

This study project aims to find suitable approaches for APEC to fill the Infrastructure Gaps in the APEC’s economies, especially developing ones. This can be done by the examination of the development of principles for APEC’s economies to address the “infrastructure gap”, i.e. between infrastructure investments required for the future, and the capacity of public sector in attracting possible source of funds especially from the private sector to meet those development requirements, especially in the context of financial crisis and economic slowdown.

This study is particularly poised to explore the possibility of applying the PPP model in infrastructure development in APEC developing economies. The PPP model offers some significant advantages over traditional public procurement in terms of efficiency, service quality and value for money.
