In recent years, the attitude toward the Public-Private Partnership (PPP), its role in infrastructure development and in overcoming inequalities in the world is constantly changing. New challenges, in particular those related to the approval of the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030, require the use of new approaches to the implementation of projects involving private business. Completely new models of public-private partnership are emerging, for example, the ‘People First PPPs’ actively promoted by the UNECE. All these circumstances break the longstanding understanding of the role of public authorities, private business and the society in the framework of PPPs in relation to ensuring sustainable development in the world and require the expansion of rights and responsibility to people of partners in PPP projects, including for the achievement of the national indicators of SDGs. One of the important tasks in this area is the improvement of approaches to State support under PPP. To resolve this task a revision / clarification of the forms of such support as well as its principles and conditions should be provided. This paper analyses the problems that exist in this area in the transition-economy countries based on the experience of Ukraine and contains the author’s recommendations on how some of these problems could be resolved.
Keywords: Public-Private Partnership (PPP); State support under PPP; State aid; People First PPPs; State guarantees under PPP; Availability Payments.
