TRANSFORMATIVE INFRASTRUCTURE: REALIZING MEGA PROJECTS

15:00-16:15 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.2
Major projects such as the Nicaragua Canal, the Power of Siberia, the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, and the railways in the Eastern Polygon – as well as other global infrastructure developments – promise to change the global economic landscape. Yet these initiatives require billions of dollars in investment and present enormous challenges, as well as potential benefits. What steps can international organizations and the public sector take to reduce the risks associated with mega projects? How can financing be best secured for the implementation of these projects?
