Developing Best Practices for Promoting Private Sector Investment in Infrastructure: Ports

This five-volume set presents the findings of an ADB regional technical assistance study which developed sector-specific best practices for promoting private sector participation in key infrastructure sectors in ADB's developing member countries.The best practices cover the role of government, institutional reform, strategic planning, legal and regulatory frameworks, unbundling and competition, contractual arrangements, sources of financing, and the allocation of risk. This volume reviews the various arrangements used throughout the world to transfer public port activities and assets to the private sector. It examines the trend toward terminal concessions and the transition from operating ports to landlord ports, and considers best practice.
