Conference paper
Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)


During the last decade there has been a resurgence of interest in private financing and increased mobilisation of private capital for transport infrastructure. One reason is fiscal pressure because of a shortage of public funds. Other reasons are the improvement of efficiency of construction and operation, the appropriate treatment of risk and the market conforming allocation of the total costs associated with the project.
