Summary/Abstract: From a theoretical point of view, public-private partnership (PPP) is constantly associated within academic literature dedicated to local economic development (LED) with a mechanism capable of stimulating local economy through implementation of general interest projects. However, poor empirical evidence proving the impact of PPPs on LED can be found in the literature body. Therefore, the aim of the paper is to present the results of an empiric analysis on the impact public sector and business environment relationship has on the economic and social development process of local communities, in a Romanian context. Research reveals the extent to which PPPs contribute to economic development at local level (county level), using the results of a questionnaire administered to county authorities representatives.
