During the last two decades Latin America has experienced a significant growth in the development of public infrastructure. Some countries have recently approved ambitious infrastructure programmes and legal frameworks, or have modernised such frameworks to foster further investment. Nevertheless, the infrastructure deficit is still enormous in many of the region’s countries and the challenges appear to remain the same. This presents an extraordinary challenge for both the public and private sectors. What needs to be done to provide more successful infrastructure programmes? How can investors be more effective, in developing infrastructure projects on time? How can new regulatory regimes help overcome challenges These are some of the questions this panel aims to discuss. This session includes participation from Latin America infrastructure legal experts, sponsors, financers and/or contractors.
