Latin America and Caribbean: Conference on infrastructure investment


Bridging infrastructure gaps through smart investment

Lima, Peru - 7-8 July 2014  | Página en español

This event promoted a peer dialogue on investment in Latin American infrastructure, both between governments and between governments and investors to address the following questions:

  • What are the needs and the opportunities?
  • What can governments do to maximise the economic and development benefits generated by infrastructure?
  • Which strategies are more useful to facilitate investment?

The meeting revolved around six interactive panels: 

  • Investment in infrastructure: the development nexus
  • Investment in energy: regional approaches and experiences
  • Investment in transport: corporate strategies and regulatory challenges
  • Investment in infrastructure: what role for long-term investors?
  • Investment facilitation: Pacific Alliance perspectives
  • What’s next?

This conference brought together policyma‌kers, international experts and other interested stakeholders, from business, think tanks, academia and civil society along with leading international organisations.

Co-organised with the Government of Peru and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and supported by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), this conference was the fourth meeting of the Latin America and Caribbean-OECD Investment Initiative.
