Abstract
Abstract A significant number of literatures have concentrated on diverse issues related to Public–Private Partnership (PPP) both in China and abroad. However, there is no systematic analysis on the PPP research progress and status in Chinese journals, which is worth investigating because China is one of the largest PPP markets globally. In addition, there are many PPP publications in international journals based on the context of China. A comparative study is still missing between the PPP publications in Chinese journals and international journals. This paper hence aims to conduct a critical review of PPP publications from selected first tier Chinese journals and international journals. Based on a three-stage literature review research framework, 615 and 70 high quality research papers on PPP topics were selected from Chinese and international journals in the last decade between 2005 and 2014, respectively. Main research methods, research topics and research findings were then identified through content analysis and statistical analysis methods. It is found that in these two journals the frequently adopted research methods are case study , literature review , modeling , questionnaire survey and comparison ; and the popular research topics include PPP models and their application , risk management , financing and economic issues , l egal and procurement issues , government regulation and guarantee . Comparison analysis results show that in terms of order of popularity, there are more similarities in the research topics than research methods in Chinese and international journals. The outcomes of this paper contribute to the PPP body of knowledge through summarizing PPP research in Chinese journals and international journals in the context of China. In addition, the findings are valuable for Chinese researchers to embark future research on PPP. This paper also breaks the language barrier and enriches western researchers a better understanding of the research status of PPP in the context of China.

AbstractPublic-private partnership (PPP) models are frequently used in construction projects worldwide. The experiences of developed and developing countries vary depending on existing legal, economical, social, and political environments. Although there are some common challenges, risks, limitations, and success factors, practicing PPP framework is also dependent on country-specific factors. In this paper, first the state of the art in frequent PPP practicing regions/countries such as Europe, t...

AbstractA significant body of literature has been dedicated to research studies on construction labor productivity (CLP) and related issues, and many underlying theories and industrial practices on CLP application have been reported. However, research topics about CLP are highly diversified and there is a lack of systematic analysis in CLP-related issues. Through a systematic review of selected papers from well-known academic journals in construction management, major research areas are identifi...

Abstract Large-scale venues for exhibitions and events are important public infrastructure. Developing venues have captured much of governments' attention due to the potential benefits the industry would bring to the community. However, venue development requires considerable capital and operating costs, unique standards of design and complicated operational issues. Public–Private Partnerships were introduced by governments as innovative delivery models to bring forward venue projects. This pape...

In this paper,we focus on public-private partnership projects whose revenue depends on charges collected from users. We investigate whether the government should extend the private sector's operation period when the demand unexpectedly declines so that Pareto-improvement can be achieved for both the private sector and consumers. Our results show that( 1) in some scenarios the Pareto-improvement can be achieved by solely dropping price without need for an extension of the operation period;( 2) wh...

Through a case study on Beijing's No. 4 Metro line, this paper illustrates benefits, costs, opportunities and risks in public–private partnerships (PPP) in China. It describes the process to land a concession agreement; demonstrates the consequences for revenue and costs from using a private entrepreneur; and estimates the benefits to the public sector. By using a PPP model, the public sector may save up to 31% of its initial investment and 9.4% of total expenses during the concession. The priva...

A few cities in some of the larger developing countries in Latin America and Asia have made increasing use of multi-year concessions or franchises, competitively awarded to private companies, for construction and operation of urban transport infrastructure and for provision of public transport services. In view of the strong prospective growth of developing-country cities with large transport needs, and the rise in the emerging economies of potential new sources of private capital, it is importa...

AbstractPublic-private partnerships (PPPs) are increasingly used to procure Australian infrastructure projects. As with all construction projects, the early briefing stages are often the most crucial in determining a successful outcome. There is, however, a lack of systematic research on the type and nature of the critical factors affecting the effectiveness and efficiency of PPP during this period. A literature review is presented of PPP usage in Australia, in which four main categories of fact...

Abstract Public private partnerships (PPPs) have been widely adopted to provide essential social and economic infrastructure and services. However, there is currently no systematic mechanism governing how social concerns should be captured at different stages of a PPP project. This paper, therefore, advocates a rethinking of the pragmatic issues underpinning public engagement and suggests a process framework that puts people as a major stakeholder for implementing PPP schemes. This public privat...

Although the Chinese government at all levels has increasingly embraced Public-Private Partnership (PPP) as their preferred approach to deliver large-scale infrastructure since 2014, residual value risk (RVR) has been ignored in PPP practice. To systematically explore the critical risk factors (CRFs) responsible for measuring RVR in highway PPP projects, this paper proposes and refines a conceptual model composed of two risk dimensions (four risk categories) and 29 indicators through process-bas...

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) have been subjected to considerable public debate. In particular, this debate has concerned PPP financing and its implications. Using insights from agency theory, this study aims to develop a theoretical understanding of PPP financing. The following research question is investigated: How does the privatization of financing decrease or increase agency costs in social infrastructure PPPs? A comparative case study consisting of four Norwegian PPP projects with dif...

AbstractDuring the operation stage of public-private partnership (PPP) projects, investors may engage in opportunistic behaviour in pursuit of their own profits. In order to curb this kind of behaviour, this article analyses the selection of government supervision mode based on evolutionary game theory taking the perspective of government supervision. The results show that government supervision mode is closely related to the probability of identifying investors’ speculative behaviour through ou...

Abstract Public-Private Partnership (PPP) has been promoted as an alternative procurement method to provide public services. In recent years, several studies have been carried out in order to identify and assess the critical success factors (CSFs) of PPP projects. However, the interrelation between success criteria (SC) and CSFs in PPP projects has not received attention from researchers. To fill this gap, this paper intended to evaluate the effects of CSFs on the success of PPP projects using P...
