Delocalization of Expenditures: The Role of Foreign Actors in Infrastructural Public Private Partnerships

Innes, Kyle

This paper investigates the role played by foreign actors in infrastructural public private partnerships. It uses a case study of PortMiami where two public private partnerships, developed under the auspices of the Florida Department of Transportation, have been recently completed or are under construction. The PortMiami Tunnel, a road tunnel providing highway access to the port, was built by a special purpose vehicle under the control of a series of foreign actors. The Intermodal/ rail restoration, providing freight rail services to the port, is being built by a Florida based development firm. This paper will use its findings to gain an understanding of the role played by foreign actors in Public Private Partnerships and their potential to change the way regions plan infrastructure.
