Amongst these interviews, seven were launched with experts from the private sector. This paper presents the overall analysis of these interviews which helps the local government to understand what can be done to attract the private sector to their public works projects. The results showed that in general the private sector believed that they were a lot more efficient in mobilizing projects hence would benefit the overall outcomes. Their prime concerns were related to the government's support and uncertainties. In the context of skill and expertise, they felt totally confident In addition, the government could encourage the private sector to participate in more PPP projects, by speeding up necessary government procedures. Controversies arising from heated debates at the Legislative Council have also been a significant problem. And the private sector was more than happy to participate in these projects as long as there are clear objectives from the government and an appealing business case.
