Abstract: We extend the literature on Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) to understand the benefits of these incentive-compatible contracting arrangements to the private sector firms. We argue that the unique structure of PPPs helps in mitigating information asymmetry problem that drives underinvestment in the private sector of emerging markets and thereby enhances their investment efficiency. We test this hypothesis on PPPs that occurred in India over the last one decade.
