English Abstract

This study uses the Analytic Network Process (ANP) to carefully study the feasibility that the private participation proposal can achieve the expected objective. The evaluation focuses on the selection of private enterprises to participate in infrastructure projects. It provides a reference for final selection of the best proposal based on a multiple-criteria decision making model to reduce the financial burden of the government and improve the public service quality. The government is hoping to guide the funds from the private sector to infrastructure projects, thus relieving the difficult financial status of the government. The experienced management strategies of the private sector are also hoped to improve the overall service quality, and drive the development of the regional economy.
