Continuous and close public-private collaboration at a country level remains crucial to unlocking the capital necessary to bridge the enduring infrastructure financing gap. Focusing on select countries globally, this initiative serves as an enabling platform to create the conditions that can attract increased private sector participation in national infrastructure projects.
To achieve this goal, the initiative convenes national multi-stakeholder Working Groups. Recognized and endorsed by the respective governments, the Working Groups are mandated to identify actionable solutions to facilitate infrastructure financing and development. This collaborative approach aims to achieve tangible progress in a relatively short timeframe and contribute to an acceleration of each country’s project delivery process.
Members of these Working Groups are senior executives drawn from several sectors, including institutional and private investors, banks and financial services firms, infrastructure developers, energy companies, and multilateral development banks.
The initiative is currently active in Argentina, Brazil, India and Vietnam and has been successfully completed in Indonesia.
