Public-Private Partnerships: The Underlining Principles of Infrastructure Investment, Finance and Development Projects

Ikechukwu Ikea Chinyere, Xiaolin Xu


In a lot of countries, paucity and inadequate of resources upon the public investments available for infrastructural
projects have led government to request the private sector to go into long-term contractual agreements for the
investing and maintenance of capital intensive development projects.
This paper analyzes the underlining principles of infrastructure investment, finance and development projects,
centering on Public Sector (PS) and Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). We demonstrated that project
investments are suitable for PPP infrastructure projects, since properties and development projects are situated in
a precise location.
Furthermore, in the scenario of an accurately formulated PPP contract, the higher expenditure of capital and
investment are perhaps the compensation for competence, effectiveness and advantages of PPPs. Lastly, we
anticipated that PPP modification will continue to advance in the future, when more detailed and specialize
academic research has been adequately conducted with the aids of innovative ideas and results oriented
outcomes reported accordingly.
