Infrastructure drives economic growth, jobs, quality of life, health and welfare. It is essential to our modern world, in particular in the wake of the financial crisis. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) can provide Governments with more efficient, more effective, better managed, more transparent and more competitive sources of infrastructure services, financed through new sources of funding.

Each summary is prepared by top rated legal practices, with extensive experience in commercial and financial law, and at the forefront of PPP and project finance in their respective jurisdictions. The legal issues addressed highlight the most fundamental legal concerns that investors will have with the enabling environment when contemplating a PPP in a growth market, for example:
- asset ownership;
- tariff and regulatory regimes;
- penalty regimes;
- corporate structures;
- foreign ownership restrictions;
- dispute resolution mechanisms; and
- the creation of security rights.
The fourteen countries represented were selected for their current pipeline of projects and their growth potential. They include: Brazil, Chile, China, Egypt, India, Nigeria, Romania, Russia, South Korea, Tanzania, Turkey, Uganda, UAE, and the USA.
This guide offers investors, lenders, consultants and Governments a practical, accessible and substantive resource, a survey of applicable law at your fingertips. It is an essential tool for companies, funds, investment vehicles and the like who invest in PPPs and project finance structures, and the banks, financial institutions, and funds that finance them. It is also a useful guide for Governments and their advisers when looking to improve their investment climate for PPPs and project finance, helping to understand what other Governments are doing to attract investors and make these projects more accessible.
As an annual manual, this guide will be updated each year with latest information and additional countries.
