The FINANCIAL -- Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are long-term contractual arrangements between a government body and a non-government partner, usually for public service building projects.

The partner is responsible for building, operating and maintaining an asset, and in exchange the government body pays regular fees to the partner.

Eurostat has issued an official note responding to a number of questions raised by national statistical authorities and other PPP stakeholders, regarding the interpretation and application of the 2016 Guide to the Statistical Treatment of PPPs.
