PPP—what exactly is it? A definition

PPP stands for public-private partnership. PPP is a kind of cooperation between public-sector clients and businesses in the private sector who act as contractors.

Their purpose is to realize public-sector infrastructure projects as quickly as possible and to a high standard of quality, and make them available to the public. In public-sector building construction, for instance, such projects take in schools, town halls, hospitals, police stations or cultural buildings. In the area of long distance road construction, they include highways, bridges or tunnels. The business model is also known as P³ or private finance initiative (PFI).
