concession
USA
A governmental authorization granted to a private company to construct, develop or operate a government-owned asset such as a toll road, a bridge or a mine for an agreed time period. At the end of the concession term, the asset reverts to the control and management of the government until a new concession is issued. The concession, depending on the asset, can take the form of a lease, agreement, license, permit or mining title. A concession is generally long term (50, 75 or 99 years) to compensate the private party for its investment in the asset.
