Public-Private Partnership as a Tool for National Development in the Philippines, 1992-2016
Severo C. Madrona, Jr. (University of the Philippines)
The emergence of Public Private Partnership as a mode for intensified private
sector participation in the development and management of public infrastructure
and services is a culmination of decades-long public sector reforms envisioned
by the UK and US neo-conservative administrations (backed by the international
organizations World Bank and the International Monetary Fund). PPPs evolves
from the earlier recipe of privatization, deregulation and build-operate-transfer. It
is within this context that this paper is being presented. This paper attempts to
provide a framework for evaluating cases of public-private partnerships (PPP) in
the field of governance by linking the indicators and the yardsticks of good
governance in the hope of institutionalizing it in development endeavors. It
examines the philosophy of the reforms, the legal frameworks, institutional
foundations, the various programs, accomplishments, problems and challenges.
Concrete examples are identified: the PIATCO Terminal 3 PPP, the MRT
Common Station and the PPP for School Infrastructure Project (Phase I and II).
