Profile Ciprian GORITA

With an education profile dominated by political science and international relations (the latter with MA and PhDdegrees), and a professional experience ranging from the former Ministry of European Integration to the Ministry of Public Finance in Romania, the current research in the field of Public-Private Partnerships aims to delineate the reality of Romanian infrastructure and to propose new ways for realizing it.

Summary of the research project

The research is focused on the diverse forms of Public-Private Partnerships used at international and European level (i.e., European Union), in terms of in terms of emphasizing common points and differences, not only from a sector applicability point of view, but also from the pursued results’ approach. By shaping the conceptual framework of the Public-Private Partnership and in accordance with current trends, the research aims to propose additional analytical elements to enhance the implementation of the concept in Romania.

Given the effects of the international financial crisis over the states’ budgets and the more stringent needs of energy efficiency, infrastructure and innovation as contributing elements of the economic growth and of the increase in capabilities of state actors in a reconfigured international system, the use of Public-Private Partnership as an alternative financing mechanism of investment projects may represent an optimal solution for state actors in the globalisation era.

From the common and different points between PPP forms met at international level, their regulation at European level and new trends in the field as expressed in the 2008 European Economic Recovery Plan promoted by the European Commission President José Manuel Barroso in 2008, a second level of analysis focuses on the applicability, in Romania, of the European Union legal and statistical regulations in the field, with direct consequences on Romania's excessive deficit reporting (the deficit and public debt reporting). The analysis will also consider specific problems in the implementing process of the contracts of works concession and services concession in Romania, as main elements in the harmonisation of the PPP concept. In addition, the latest financing trends at international level will also be of help. Specific solutions will be proposed for the successful implementation of these infrastructure investment projects.
