Conference on Concessions 2015

Concession model, an efficient tool to foster growth across Europe: how to build a level playing field to attract private investors


30 March 2015 (European Economic & Social Committee, Brussels, Belgium)

ASECAP organised a high-level conference that analyzed the impact of the new European Directive on the award of concession contracts across Europe focusing specifically on the transport sector.

ASECAP has commissioned a study on the Concession Model to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). The main findings of the study, entitled Evaluation and future of road toll concessions, were presented on the occasion of this conference. The study contains the perspective of Toll Road Operators on the importance of this key tool to ensure consistent and long-term investments in the Europen transport network. Furthermore, the study provides a comprehensive insight into how the Concession Model has been implemented in ASECAP member countries so far.
