New Forms of Public-Private Partnership in Japan

2009. No. 3. P. 178–188 [issue contents]
The article reviews some new forms of public-private partnerships in the infrastructure that has received a stimulus in Japan in recent years. Specifically, the system of «authorized managers» which has become one of the most demanded models of PPP is being examined in detail. The «admittance» of private business to the management of state property objects is considered to be an effective tool to upgrade the level of services provided to the people, to cut the costs and to stimulate economic activities. The spectrum of spheres, the system of «authorized managers» is introduced to, is quite broad and includes municipal housing construction, management of various state objects – sport grounds, culture facilities, libraries, museums, parks, parking lots, etc. Success stories of this kind of PPP’s are exemplified, as well as problems and weaknesses of the system are analyzed scrupulously. The author draws a conclusion that the utilization of the «contract management» system in the infrastructure in Japan will not only proceed smoothly but will also expand in scale in the near future.
