ADB Boosts Public-Private Partnership in India Infrastructure Projects

The Asian Development Bank will draw USD2 million from the Japan Special Fund to assist Indian government agencies in developing public-private partnership models for infrastructure projects focusing on urban development, transport, water, health and education. The grant will support the creation of a competitive bidding process by looking at the institutional, financial, commercial, legal, social, environmental, and technical structuring of projects to increase private sector participation in infrastructure initiatives.
