These two new publications will replace the format and the structure of the previous semi-annual PB Newsletter, keeping the contents basically unchanged.

Rigorous, updated, easily accessible and freely distributed on the web, the PB Reports on privatization are an authoritative source of information and a vehicle for a more informed discussion on the choices and consequences of privatization.
