Infrastructure Investments in Global Markets
Infrastructure is the physical backbone of any nation.
Transportation, communication, water, energy and electric systems are all examples of infrastructure. These systems tend to be high-cost investments, but, they are vital to a country's economic development and prosperity.
Infrastructure projects could either be funded publicly, privately or through public-private partnerships.
According to the Overseas Development Institute the demand for infrastructure in the developing world is much higher than the amount invested. There are severe constraints on the supply side of the provision of infrastructure in Asia. The infrastructure financing gap between what is invested in Asia-Pacific (around US$48 billion) and what is needed (US$228 billion) is around US$180 billion every year.
In Latin America, three percent of GDP (around US$71 billion) would need to be invested in infrastructure in order to satisfy demand, yet in 2005, for example, only around two percent was invested leaving a financing gap of approximately US$24 billion.
In Africa, in order to reach the seven percent annual growth calculated to be required would require infrastructure investments of about fifteen percent of GDP, or around US$93 billion a year. In fragile states, over thirty-seven percent of GDP would be required.
