Top PPP locations revealed

11 May 2012 The world’s top markets for PPP investment over the next 12 months have been identified in a survey by Partnerships Bulletin and consultancy Deloitte.
In a poll of 70 leading PPP companies around the world, Canada came out top of those countries expecting to see the greatest activity in the sector during 2012-13, followed by the US and European regions France and Benelux.

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.

To get a greater insight into the top five PPP markets for 2012-13, sign up for Partnerships Bulletin’s Big Five conference in association with Deloitte.
