The staggering infrastructure finance deficit across Asia could throttle the region’s growth. By 2030, economies across Asia need to invest about US$1.7 trillion per year to support urbanisation and economic development. Yet, only half that amount is currently invested every year, signalling that Asia is facing a significant infrastructure investment deficit. What’s more, 90% of infrastructure projects across Asia now are financed by public funds. There is an urgent need to seek alternative sources of financing to tackle the region’s serious infrastructure shortfall.
Real estate strategies can play a major role in attracting private investments, bridging the financing gap and delivering high-quality infrastructure across Asia. Whether it is by raising upfront capital or by generating operating revenues, real estate can be a game-changer for the long-term financial viability of infrastructure projects.
This event will highlight – through international case studies and best practices – how investors, developers and the public sector can more effectively collaborate under win-win conditions to deliver high-quality infrastructure through the value generated from real estate.
