Public-private partnerships - Adding value to Europe's public services
BUSINESSEUROPE's brochure called "Public-private partnerships: Adding value to Europe’s public services" aims to raise awareness of the benefits that PPPs can bring to the economy and society. This brochure was presented by President Seillière on 8 October during BUSINESSEUROPE’s high-level event "Regions and companies: a question of partnership" in the framework of the Open Days. As illustrated in the brochure, public-private partnerships (PPP) can, if managed correctly, improve the quality of services, provide greater choice for citizens, allow for faster delivery and improve control of public spending. In this context, BUSINESSEUROPE calls on the EU and public authorities in Europe to remove barriers that restrict partnership between the public and private sectors and calls for the wider promotion and use of PPPs as a key way to improve public service innovation.
