The article discusses how the public-private partnership (PPP) is coping with the global financial crisis. It notes that the crisis disrupted the private activity in infrastructure and changed private investment in infrastructures where private operators chose contracts that were free from risks. It indicates that most countries are recognizing infrastructure investment as a tool for dealing with the economic crisis and that there is less threat today for the PPP model than during the 1997 crisis.
