Public sector

Thanks to the division of work, responsibility and risk, the most economically effective way to develop infrastructure and provide public services is achieved under PPP. 

In Poland, recovery of fixed assets means that gross capital expenditures in the public infrastructure sector should reach about PLN 1,150 billion in 2011-2022, with the annual financial gap (missing resources in the public sector) in 2011-22 between PLN 116 and 197 bn (in constant prices as of 2009). One solution to this situation is the implementation of projects carried out by public-private partnerships, where it is the private partner’s obligation to provide the project’s financing, or the implementation of hybrid projects combining the use of public, private and EU funds. The development of public-private partnerships in Poland and an increase in the financial involvement of the private sector could effectively contribute eliminating the financial gap, as the Maastricht Treaty has ordered the removal of infrastructure investment financing out of the budgets of local government bodies. In many countries, such as Spain, Portugal and Italy, this has led to dynamic development of PPP projects and an increase in the capital commitment of the private sector.
