Abstract:

This paper presents the findings of a study to investigate the driving forces leading to adoption for Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects. A questionnaire survey was conducted in Gujarat (India), Hong Kong and Australia. The survey respondents were asked to rate the importance of nine identified reasons for implementing PPP projects. The findings of the top three ranks for each respondent group were investigated. Ranked top by the survey respondents in Gujarat (India) was 'Shortage of Government funding'. Ranked second by all three groups of survey respondents was 'Economic development pressure demanding more facilities'. Third in Gujarat (India) and Hong Kong and first in Australia was 'High quality of service required'. The rankings showed that in general those rated highly in the Gujarat (India) focused on financial elements whereas those rated highly in Hong Kong and Australia were more related to the overall performance of improving public projects. These findings were believed to provide an idea of the possible reasons for implementing PPP projects, and as a result illustrate a clearer understanding of the process.
