  2. 2. 2 The regulatory and institutional framework for public-private partnerships (PPP) is currently under review in Turkey. Works and services concessions form an important part of PPP operations. In the European Union, their procurement is now regulated by the Concessions Directive, while other directives regulate public contracts in general. The provisions of the Concessions Directive and the lessons learned from applying them in the European Union would be an important point of reference for helping ensure the successful development of PPP operations in Turkey. In co-operation with the PPP Department of the Ministry of Development, SIGMA is therefore glad to hold a an informal workshop on the theme of “The EU’s Concessions Directive and examples of its implementation in Europe”.
