Infrastructure / PFI / PPP

As SDGs become common in corporate activities, solving social issues is becoming a business issue. In the future, PPP/PFI/concession projects, which aim to develop public facilities, etc., are expected to further expand in terms of fields and number of projects.

City-Yuwa Partners has experience in PPP/PFI/concession projects related to public facilities such as airports, water supply and sewerage systems, and complex facilities, and is involved in a wide range of domestic PFI projects. City-Yuwa Partners has lawyers who have experience as advisors for national and local public bodies. Thus, we can support our clients both on the public side and business side, and not only in legal aspects such as contract drafting, but also in general aspects of bid procedures. For example, we can analyze the advantages and disadvantages of different schemes, support answering various questions from national and local public bodies, and even consult with the government on matters related to government agency and parliamentary responses.

While public facilities built during the high economic growth period are rapidly aging, tax revenues are declining due to population decline, and expenditures such as medical expenses are increasing due to aging. The trend of opening the construction and operation of public facilities to private businesses can be said to be irreversible. We can provide detailed, flexible, and high-quality services to clients involved in these matters.
