Privatization is often mentioned as a way to get much needed, but difficult to finance infrastructure projects delivered for both developed and developing countries. However, the suitability of the privatization strategy and its likelihood of success depend on the goals of privatization, the nature of the industry to be privatized, and the level of development in the country.
