  • 菲律宾政府不会重回旧PPP模式道路

    亚洲, 2017/11/02 菲财长多明计斯表示,将坚持混合PPP新模式,不会屈于私营企业压力而重回阿基诺政府时期PPP项目模式的老路。 多明计斯重申,政府在“大建特建”计划下建设大型基础设施项目采取混合PPP模式速度会更快。 他透露,就PPP项目执行方式已与私营企业进行了两次会面,也强调了旧有PPP模式下阿基诺政府任期6年仅执行了6个基础设施项目,而新模式下的PPP项目18个月即可开始实施。新的混合PPP模式下,政府将选择、投资,并通过公开竞争性招标的方式建设大型项目,建设完成后再以向私营企业竞拍的方式安排运营和维护。多明计斯曾在最近的一次投资论坛上表示,私营企业利益分配不均会导致旧模式PPP项目实施严峻滞后,曾有一个项目耗时50个月才开始实施。 政府不会因私营企业争论利益分配而滞后基础设施的建设速度。
