A study tour to Madrid within the EU-funded project “Capacity Building for PPP Management Skills Development in the Albanian Transport Sector” has been successfully organized by the project team from the consortium partners, IRDEngineering and Aninver. The purpose of this visit was to expose the participants to the various models of PPP and to the possible financial mechanisms applied in a country like Spain, where there is a very developed framework in this type of contracts.

Officials from the Ministry of Finance, the Albanian Road Authority, and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy had the opportunity to obtain precious insights related to PPP implementation and management.

Representatives of the Spanish Ministry of Development, the Spanish Contractors Association (SEOPAN), and the Regional Government of Madrid provided practical information about the expansion of the High Capacity Road Network and their experience in PPP contracts.

The site visit to “Calle 30”, part of Madrid’s ring road, the busiest road in the Spanish network, was very much welcomed.
