Long-Term Solutions to Finance the Infrastructure Gap

3 June 2014 | InterContinental, Singapore

The financing and implementation of major infrastructure projects in emerging markets is a crucial driver for sustainable economic growth. Yet many key initiatives remain stalled due to a lack of funds, with the availability of credit constrained by tough regulatory reforms, interest rate uncertainty, and persistent concerns over risk and viability. Much more work needs to be done to create a long-term investment environment robust enough to attract the global capital required. 

The fifth annual World Bank-Singapore Infrastructure Finance Summit will focus on the latest policies and innovative solutions being envisaged to boost long-term infrastructure financing and development.

The Summit – organised by the World Bank, the Singapore Ministry of Finance, the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Financial Times, in association with the World Bank-ASEAN Infrastructure Finance Network, and with support from the Australian Government – has become the leading forum for policy-makers, investors, contractors and strategists to share best practice and new ideas on plugging the infrastructure gap.
