Future of financing infrastructure:

Most underdeveloped countries need to improve and modernize its infrastructure especially in power, suitable roads, potable water, and sanitation. With today public deficits in these countries, financing infrastructure is no longer possible not even with guarantees since sovereign debts exceeds these countries capabilities and prevent them from being able to finance such huge projects. Today the World Bank, state-owned infrastructure banks, as well as private investments play a vital role in financing infrastructures ventures,.

Over and above, pension funds, sovereign funds as well as specialist funds search for direct investment in infrastructure projects and ventures whether directly or indirectly.

The public private partnership (PPP) became the most suitable solution for managing and operating the existing infrastructures, subject to the governments’ capabilities in proving the stability of their countries and in protecting the transaction.

Since securing long term financing is no longer easy, especially after adoption of Basel 3 pronouncements, it became essential to achieve a balance between public and private financing.
