Public-private partnership in foreign economic activity: main trends in development and recommendations for assessment

Oleh Kuzmin, Olha Pyroh, Marianna Tomych, Kateryna Doroshkevych


Introduction. Public-private partnership (PPP) is considered as the interaction of the state and business structures - subjects of economic activity of Ukraine and foreign subjects of economic activity (also subjects of economic activity of Ukraine with foreign countries), which is one of the conditions for attracting the necessary investment resources, increasing innovative activity in the national economy, development of economic and social infrastructure, solving economic, social and environmental problems, etc.

Purpose. Taking into account the trends in the number of PPP projects in foreign economic activity in Ukraine and the world, their financing, areas of implementation, geographical localization, the article should provide a quantitative assessment of data characterizing the state and level of implementation of PPP projects in foreign economic activity, obtained after performing mathematical operations.

Method (methodology). The article uses theoretical generalization, analysis, synthesis, statistical methods of data processing, etc. This ensured the analysis of literary sources, the formation of a system of indicators intended for assessing the state of PPPs in foreign economic activity and its practical approval.

Results. The article recommends a system of indicators, which includes: the growth rate of the number of PPP projects in foreign economic activity, the average base (chain) growth rate of the number of PPP projects in foreign economic activity, the growth rate of the number of PPP projects in foreign economic activity, the average base (chain) rate increase in the number of PPP projects in foreign economic activity, the level of implementation of PPP projects in foreign economic activity, etc. For each of the recommended indicators, the method of calculation is indicated depending on the selected strategy of interaction of PPP subjects in foreign economic activity. With their use, an assessment of PPP in foreign economic activity was carried out based on the study of PPP projects implemented by Davydivska OTG. Based on the results of the assessment, conclusions were drawn regarding the trend in the implementation of PPP projects in the foreign economic activity of Davydivska OTG.
