Traditionaly, infrastructure has been the exclusive province of the public sector, with large, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) being responsible for investment and service delivery. In the early 1980s under the support of the World Bank and IMF, many of these countries restructured their economies. In line with the restructuring, these countries were to divest the management of these services to the private sector. It was felt at the time that SOEs are costly and inefficient providers of infrastructure services in most developing countries. They continuously depended on central government to finance even their recurrent expenditure. They were also thought not to have been able to attract significant investment badly needed for the provision of infrastructure services. They failed in the mist of dwindling public and Overseas Development Assistants (ODAs) funding to the sector to attract investment into the sector.[authors abstract]
