In this globalized world, countries compete with each other (as well as trade together) to drive economic growth. I always find it interesting to see what other countries are doing compared to our innovative ideas. 

I think it's meaningful that Abu Dhabi, a growing global financial and trade center at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, is loudly promoting public-private partnerships (P3s) as key to their economic growth and competitiveness. This means they see P3 as a key tool to long-term growth and economic competitiveness. 

Are we using the P3 model to it's full potential in the U.S.? There are certainly some wonderful examples, but I think the COVID crisis has shown us we can be much more creative and innovative than we have been for the past several decades.
