More PPPs to come in Kosovo

Kosovo’s Prime Minister Hashim Thaci stated the government will continue to pursue more public-private partnerships in a bid to improve the country’s infrastructure, after announcing a Turkish-French consortium will operate Pristina International Airport, the country’s major international gateway (Balkan Insight, 12-Apr-2011). Limak-Aeroport de Lyon will operate Pristina International under a 20 year PPP scheme, which will see the government receive 40% of the airport’s gross profits. “Being in a position where we lack financial resources to meet all needs, the government treats PPPs as an opportunity to improve the infrastructure of Kosovo without placing an excessive burden on public finances,” the prime minister said.
