Do you know that an art museum will soon stand at Minhang Culture Park ? As the first cultural project operated in PPP mode in Shanghai, the art museum is constructed in the new mode featuring cooperative operation of government and social capital. And the application of the new mode will bring us continuous art exhibitions in the whole year, 12 events of cultural products and services and dozens of cultural and artistic activities each year. After learning about it, you must be full of anticipation and curiosity about the PPP mode. Let’s take a look!
What is the PPP mode?
The PPP (Public-Private Partnerships) mode is a cooperation model of government and social capital as well as the partnerships formed by the government departments and social capital to provide public products and services.
The PPP mode is mainly used in infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges, railways and subways, the public utility projects such as power supply, water supply, gas supply and heating supply and the social undertaking projects such as schools, medical care and nursing homes. At present the PPP mode has been used in the two projects of the comprehensive elderly care service center and the Minhang Culture Park Art Museum.
Take a look at how the Minhang Culture Park Art Museum will be run in the PPP mode.
At present Minhang District is building the international culture brands of Minhang Culture Park and Qibao Eco-business District. More and more private investors have turned their eyes to the arts and cultural industries, and more and more Minhang people have begun to pay attention to the development of cultural life in the district. How will the Minhang Culture Park Art Museum newly built in the PPP mode be operated?
Minhang Culture Park Art Museum is expected to cover a total area of 14,000 square meters, with the building including two layers above ground and one layer underground. The art museum has had the functional government department as the implementation institution of the project, who has been in charge of the establishment of the project and the purchases for the social investors according to law, signed the PPP project agreement with the project company set up by the social investors, and granted the right of management for the project. After the completion of the museum, the social investors will hold 100% stake in the project and take charge of investment, construction, operation and maintenance for the museum, and all the assets formed by the social investment belong to the district government. After the expiration of the operation, the management right of the museum will be transferred to the designated government department.
