Adequate infrastructure is necessary for economic and social development of both developing and developed countries. Businesses rely on modern infrastructure to remain competitive, while society depends on high-quality infrastructure to ensure equal opportunity, social mobility and access to health services, food, fuel, education and other basic needs. Greater private investment and increased public-private partnerships are needed to alleviate the burden expensive infrastructure projects have on public financing.
This workshop will discuss:
- how infrastructure investment banks are encouraging public-private partnerships
- the role of chambers in matching public infrastructure demands with private investors
- the International Infrastructure Support System and how this platform can provide countries with templates to prepare projects that enable project teams to collaborate online through the process of project preparation
