Djordje Popovic on PPP in Danas

On July 31, I&I Committee President Djordje Popovic promoted FIC views on PPP in an interview he gave mainly as a representative of his company CMS.

Explaining the need to increase the level of efficiency of public services in order to increase capital investments, he outlined that the Public Private Partnerships, which have a great potential for improvement of infrastructure, aren’t at the optimal level in Serbia. Despite the Law on PPPs being adopted in 2011 for the first time, only around 20 small projects were realized until now, out of the several thousand proposed. As exceptions, he cited the two large projects - concession for Belgrade airport “Nikola Tesla” and project of sanitation of municipal waste landfill in Vinca. Significant efforts are needed in Serbia for using the potential of the significant market of PPPs. As two main challenges, Djordje Popovic outlined insufficient capacities of the Commission for PPP and limited knowledge and experience of the public partners. “Currently in Serbia we are faced with the situation that main public entities are too cautious when assessing the justifiability of the PPP project, which is in part understandable having in mind that this is relatively new concept”, he said. Sharing knowledge and experience on all the levels of authorities, linking with the PP Commission, and exchange of experiences from abroad are needed he said. “Apart from this, the political support is of key importance, as indicated by the experiences of the much more developed markets than Serbian”, Popovic, a partner in CMS said. The interview can be accessed here below.
