Turkey''s private healthcare sector is growing rapidly, but the lack of a clear regulatory framework has been a barrier to foreign investment. Under the new law on public-private partnerships (PPP), passed by parliament late on Thursday, the state will rent city hospitals built and run by the private sector for 25 years. The new rules aim to cut red tape and pave the way for government guarantees for international project financing investments of 500 million lira ($279 million) and above. "The regulation will have a positive impact on the sector as it will remove delays caused by the previous rules and reduce the number of permissions needed," said Tunc Duygun, PPP coordinator for the YDA Insaat construction firm.  Three Turkish hospitals are currently under construction under a PPP framework, while six are in the contract stage, seven in final bids stage and two still awaiting pre-qualification applications. The projects are expected to add 28,000 beds to Turkey''s existing 200,000-bed capacity.
