Infrastructure development needs in Latin America and the Caribbean are great.
As the region gives way to a burgeoning middle class, the population demands a better quality of life resulting in opportunities for the private sector to introduce and capitalize innovative solutions to this immense demand on public infrastructure.
The IDB claims that these countries would need to invest, on average, 5% of GDP annually—that is double their current level of investment in infrastructure—in order to bring their infrastructure up to international standards within a decade.
To accommodate these levels of investment, governments have taken important steps to promote private sector participation in infrastructure by improving the investment climate. This, in combination with new technologies, materials, financing mechanisms and other innovations, is providing unprecedented opportunities in infrastructure in the Americas. These opportunities are available for a broad range of business—from large construction companies, to many types of financiers, to small and medium-sized businesses. Knowing who is who in this vast and diverse region can be a game changer for your company or organization.
The Trade Americas & ConnectAmericas Expo: Building the Americas, held September 3-4, 2014 at JW Marriott Marquis Miami, provides a unique chance to connect with potential business partners and financiers, and learn from corporate and government leaders in the region about the latest trends and opportunities in infrastructure in Latin American countries.
Diaz Reus’ founding partner, Michael Diaz Jr., and a group of distinguished panelists will be covering the topic:
