Port reform changes the institutional structure in the port and increases involvement of the private sector. To attract participation and long-term financial commitments from potential investors, it is important to have a legal framework for defining public-private partnerships (PPP). To hive off specific functions to the private sector, it is a necessity to have a solid, open, and transparent transaction process, whereby rules and responsibilities are clear for each party. There are different possibilities for a port authority or government to reach commercial and financial agreement with potential investors. Concession agreements are often developed as a part of a BOT scheme and represent specific agreements between the port authority or government and concessionaire to carry out construction and operation of a port development project. PPP is common practice, particularly in terminal and infrastructure development. We assess the impacts on the overall transaction via SWOT analysis and risk identification.
