Subject. This article studies the economic relations arising under the influence of development institutions on investment in infrastructure.
Objectives. The article aims to identify the border region of the Central Chernozemic Economic Area, which is a top performer in terms of investment efficiency of infrastructure projects implemented within the framework of public-private partnership.
Methods. For the study, we used the methods of systems, comparative, qualitative, and quantitative analyses.
Results. Based on the analysis of statistics on the implementation of projects within the framework of public-private partnership in the Central Chernozemic Area oblasts, the article identifies investment efficiency top performers and proposes a methodology for assessing the investment effectiveness of infrastructure projects.
Conclusions. The development institutions of top performer oblasts support investment activities. The necessary data for accurate inter-subject research is not enough, so public control of infrastructure projects carried out within public-private partnership should be tightened.
