On November 30, 2016, the Government of Argentina adopted Law 27328 known as the Public-Private Partnership Law. This new framework aims at lowering barriers to foreign investments in public works, regulating contracts between the state and the private sector for the development of projects in the infrastructure, housing, services, production, applied research and technological innovation sectors. The main issues covered by this law are:

  • Flexibility in the design of the contract to adapt its structure to the special requirements of each project and its financing;
  • PPP contracts' content must be compiled and it may include the establishment of a clause related to the contractual term that takes into account the investments that have been committed, the financing applied and reasonable profitability, or the possibility of assigning the credit rights arising out of the contractor offering them as security;
  • Depending on the project's characteristics, the Government may create public companies in which the State has a stake and/or create fund trusts for these purposes.
