About the seminar:

Public-Private Partnerships are morphing over time as governments are increasingly using them (in the guise of instruments such as Social Investment Bonds as well as explicit PPPs) to deliver social objectives as well as traditional infrastructures. In this presentation, Bronwyn Howell summarises some of the economic and legal learnings from the use of classic PPPs in roading  and applies them to the different contexts of partnerships where the infrastructure developed is owned ultimately by the private partners rather than the public partner, and may be intangible rather than tangible.  Examples considered include actual PPPs for government-subsidised fast fibre broadband networks and hypothetical health care partnerships focused on maintaining and improving populaton health states.

 About the speaker:

Bronwyn Howell is a faculty member of Victoria University's School of Management and a Research Principal and former General Manager of the New Zealand Institute for the Study of Competition and Regulation.  She has had a long-standing interest in the effects of government policy on investment in and diffusion of new technologies and business models.
