The purpose of the article is to substantiate the introduction of international public-private partnerships (IPPPs) to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in Ukraine. Methodology. The methodological framework of the research relies on the systems approach, which allows the authors to determine the main characteristics of international public-private partnerships to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals; the comparison method, which illustrates the unity of the strategic focus of international public-private partnerships and the Sustainable Development Goals; the dialectical method, which facilitates establishing potential directions for developing international public-private partnerships in Ukraine. Results. The importance of fostering international public-private partnerships to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in Ukraine is argued. The authors have defined the regime of “international-public-partnerships” in terms of the ideology of the modern economy. The components of the regulatory regime of international public-private partnerships are characterized: the goals to be achieved through introducing the regime; subjects covered by the regime; incentives, benefits, and restrictions necessary to achieve the declared goals; resources involved as part of the regime’s implementation; action plan for the regime’s implementation. The algorithm for introducing the regulatory regime of international public-private partnerships is considered: initiation and initial selection of a project for implementation in terms of an international public-private partnership; assessment and structuring of an IPPP project; drafting an IPPP agreement; conducting tendering procedures and concluding the IPPP agreement; management of the implementation of the international public-private partnership agreement (the IPPP monitoring implementation). Analysis of the current state of the implementation of public-private partnerships shows that state policy remains ineffective. The bulk of public-private partnership agreements deals with housing and public utility services, as this sector is characterized by the low cost of capital expenditures, a simple scheme of investment return, and guaranteed demand. The principal barriers hindering the development of public-private partnerships have been identified. The authors put forward a road map for the IPPP development in Ukraine with the identification of key areas. The main directions of the road map of the regulatory regime of international public-private partnerships involve: amending the legislation on public-private partnerships; increasing the level of responsibility and competence of officials charged with the formation and implementation of public policy on international public-private partnerships; guaranteeing additional sources of business financing; strengthening the role of public-private partnerships amid decentralization. The road map of the IPPP regulatory regime is aimed at stimulating the development and implementation of public-private partnership agreements for the realization of long-term projects in priority economic activities in all regions of Ukraine. Practical implications. The main development directions of the regime of international-public-private partnerships in the current economic realities are outlined. Value/originality. The introduction of the regulatory regime of international public-private partnerships in Ukraine is substantiated, given the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
