BACKGROUND AND SCOPE
It is natural for countries to be dependent on investments, especially construction sector, as it makes a noticeable contribution to the economic output of a country. Investments on construction sector generate employments and incomes for the people and therefore the effects of changes in the construction industry on the economy occur at all levels and in virtually all aspects of life (Chen, 1998; Rameezdeen, 2007).

Public Sector in this case, has a big responsibility to ensure the continuity of those investments. However, public sector in developing countries often faces issues in making investments, among them is the financial constraints and risk occurrence. Therefore, joint venture investment is seen as a solution for developing countries to improve or maintain its economic growth while also reducing public sector’s liability on the other
side. As recently, decentralization has been playing an influential role in a country’s development, the interaction between joint venture work and decentralization on solving those issues would also be an interesting matter to be discussed.

Joint venture investments can be found on various construction sectors, the most notable would be infrastructure development. In most countries, joint venture in infrastructure development differs from other joint venture such as in industrial development.
Infrastructure development in most countries is the responsibility of the public sector, while other sector such as industrial development is mostly associated with the private sector. Therefore, these 2 sectors would also have different joint venture implementations.
Aside the differences in its implementations on various sectors, joint venture work are being done differently for each country, starting from its scheme, procurement, financing to its risk management. By understanding the different characteristics of joint venture work in each country, we are going to be able to learn from the experiences of other country and develop a better framework for joint venture work. Since the development of joint venture has been rapid and intersects with many other aspects, this conference
would accept broader topic related to joint ventures.
