Spain has over 40 years of experience in realisation and management of public and private partnership projects. So far, the Spanish companies have realised in cooperation with private partners 160 project worth over € 34 billion. Spanish companies are among the leader concessionaries in the world. In Poland, Ministry of Development has taken steps to promote public-private investments in the frame of Responsible Development Plan. It should be expected there will be less EU funds invested in Poland by 2020. Hence, the necessity to seek for new sources of financing investments in the country.
