ABSTRACT
The article deals with the efforts of Voies Navigables de France to seek private partners to invest in the Seine-Nord Europe canal project. The French government has decided that a public-private partnership (PPP) approach is the best way to implement and manage the project, which has an overall budget of about € 3.2bn ($4.3bn). The aim is to create a new European freight corridor between Le Havre, Paris, and Amsterdam, linking the basins of the Seine, Scheldt and Rhine rivers to the Danube river and the Black Sea.
