Rational:Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) schemes have widely become policy and economic tools for many governments to provide essential services and infrastructures. Even though they have been introduced and implemented over the past two decades in Asia and the other regions, there have been, however, numbers of PPP projects financially failed or not fulfilled their initial objectives due to various reasons such as economic crisis, political and social resistance.
