Public-Private Partnership - Development and Dilemmas for the Future from the Point of View of the Public Partner
Purpose: The aim of this article was to evaluate the development of public-private partnership in Poland. The author also tried to determine the reasons for the still small number of such projects in Poland, also analyzing the results of his own research. Approach/Methodology/Design: A literature review in the field of PPP was used, including available statistics and surveys. Findings: The results of the research show the perspectives and dilemmas of PPP development in Poland, but also barriers and necessary changes in the future. Practical Implications: Public-private partnership in contemporary conditions, including the problems of financing public tasks by central and local authorities, may become the engine of economic development (including local), the basis for modernization, a factor in increasing competitiveness, including improving the quality of life of citizens. It is legitimate to learn about the principles of public-private partnership functioning in broad social circles in order to promote its development, both at the central, regional and local (e.g. municipal) level. Originality/Value: Public-private partnership is still an unpopular form of cooperation, hence the analysis of its development, including the inhibitory factors, is crucial for its future and universality. Own research is an additional advantage emphasizing the originality.
