Involving business in the efforts to achieve government objectives in the social sector can bring numerous benefits ranging from balancing resources and increasing speed and efficiency to facilitating the growth of related industries. Increasing the contribution made by the private sector in this area can be compared to attracting investment to the industry and the economy. To ensure the success of and a constant flow of investment into social projects new forms of collaboration need to be introduced, an effective regulatory framework should be established and a balance struck between individual interests and responsibility. The development of a roadmap for such partnership will lay transparent foundations to implement projects in the social sphere. What can be done to encourage businesses to become involved in long-term social projects, investments, and PPPs? What barriers are currently making it harder to attract private investment in social projects? How can an effective dialogue be established between government and business? Is current state support for investors sufficient?
