Public-Private Partnerships

Infrastructure development and service delivery are top priorities for governments across the globe to achieve sustained economic growth. The traditional sources of finance for governments for infrastructure creation, viz. budgetary allocations are usually strained with increased demand for improved quality infrastructure creation and service delivery. 


Therefore, governments across the globe are adopting the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model to mobilize private capital and operational efficiencies for infrastructure creation and service delivery. Aligned with this agenda of governments across the globe, PPP advisory has been a key focus area for CRISIL Infrastructure Advisory.
