PUBLIC–PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS: THE IMPERATIVE TO EXECUTE

17:15-18:30 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.1


Delivering big impact projects that can generate new economic opportunity – be it infrastructure development, improving education and creating a more highly skilled workforce, spurring R&D in basic sciences, or improving the business and investment environment – increasingly requires close collaboration between government and private sector players. Which are the key areas where effective public–private partnerships can generate growth and jobs? Which are the most effective models of public–private cooperation and where are new models of cooperation called for?

Highlights

“Concessions and PPPs do work in Russia; we know this for certain”.

Yuri Soloviev
First Deputy President and Chairman of the Management Board, VTB Bank; Chairman of the Board of Directors, VTB Capital

“Moving public-private partnerships ahead, we believe, will require a dedicated ombudsman or a “one-stop-shop” approach for launching projects <…> as well as clear-cut legislative limits on the options for adjusting tariff policies on projects that have already been launched <…>, and transparency in tenders”.

Yuri Soloviev
First Deputy President and Chairman of the Management Board, VTB Bank; Chairman of the Board of Directors, VTB Capital

“Infrastructure-related construction and construction as such represent two basic industries that could serve to substantially develop our country’s economy, create jobs, provide social infrastructure, and even move our country forward in technological terms”.

Yuri Soloviev
First Deputy President and Chairman of the Management Board, VTB Bank; Chairman of the Board of Directors, VTB Capital

“The weak points of a PPP are in taking enough time to develop it. I believe one can do it successfully, but one must be very careful to bring two different mentalities [of the private and public sectors] under one roof.”

Klaus Mangold
Chairman of the Supervisory Board, TUI
