How governments are catalysing and shaping private infrastructure finance
Governments worldwide are looking at investment in infrastructure as an effective fiscal response to stimulate growth. Infrastructure stock that was established in advanced economies in the post-WWII Marshall Plan environment, is ageing and at end-of-life. Governments are today accelerating “shovel ready” projects and legislation is being driven through to enable easing of red and green tape. In advanced and developing economies alike, as the pressure to act increases on governments, a small window of opportunity exists to stimulate economies in a way that rebuilds the core infrastructure through renewing ageing assets while building for the future.
