Hide / Show Abstract

Europe's transport links with its periphery are still inadequate while some more central areas are plagued with traffic congestion. Since new investment projects to maintain infrastructure and increase its capacity cannot always be entirely funded out of the public purse, the question of using private sector funds arises.

Round Table 81 takes stock of the problems and considers the contribution private capital could bring in funding transport infrastructure.
