Abstract

The driving factor behind Korea’s push for development of infrastructure is its recognition in recent years that the acute lack of infrastructure in key sectors affects the country’s overall productivity. Despite this pressing need, the government has had to turn to the private sector for its much-needed greenfield infrastructure projects due to budgetary and financial constraints. In this respect, the Korean government firmly recognizes the correlation between a nation’s highly-developed infrastructure and its overall competitiveness in today’s globalized economy, and it is this need for development which has led the Korean government to focus on its private participation in infrastructure (“PPI”) scheme, encouraging both equity and debt participation by domestic and foreign participants.
